Austrian director Martin Kušej's pioneering vision brings a challenging and provoking insight to Wagner’s opera of love and redemption, with his singular ability to connect characters and their actions to the score. Martin Zehetsgruber’s spacious, multi-layered sets define the settings through which Dalland (Robert Lloyd), Senta (Catherine Naglestad), The Dutchman (Juha Uusitalo) and the chorus move to great effect fulfilling the fine conducting of Hartmut Haenchen, who elicits from the orchestra an unmatchable performance of detail and clarity.

“Juha Uusitalo is a charismatic Dutchman vocally, if more demonic than romantic”

International Record Review

July/August 2011

“I must give utmost praise to conductor Hartmut Haenchen, who offers a whip-smart account of the score...It never feels rushed but it does feel inexorable, with the orchestra playing with amazing transparency: one can hear Wagner's genius creating and growing....Haenchen manages Wagner's awkward mood/tempo changes as if they were organic...Uusitalo has found his ideal role in the Dutchman...He may be the finest Dutchman I've ever encountered.”
