'A Landmark in Musical History' is John Luke Rose's title for the introduction to this extraordinary piece of theatre. It belongs to the German tradition of mystical writing, and a short note on the poem itself by Martin Swales and Timothy McFarland elucidates some of Wagner's literary techniques. Anthony Negus, who assisted Reginald Goodall on the WNO production of Tristan und Isolde, has contributed a penetrating analysis of the musical structure of the opera, while Patrick Carnegy assesses the remarkable solutions to staging an opera which some argue is best experienced with your back to the performers.Contents: Behind 'The Flying Dutchman', John Warrack; An introduction to 'The Flying Dutchman', John Deathridge; Loneliness, Love and Death, William Vaughan; The Overture to 'The Flying Dutchman', Richard Wagner; Remarks on Performing 'The Flying Dutchman', Richard Wagner; Der fliegende Holländer: Poem by Richard Wagner; The Flying Dutchman: English translation by David Pountney
