I was a bit uncertain at the beginning of this film as to how "authentic" this performance might be. I need not have worried. The film is a superb rendering of the opera, closely following Wagner's libretto and very prescriptive stage directions, unlike some staged performances on DVD which mess around with Wagners stated intentions. The imaginative effects enhance the story-telling in a manner of which Wagner would certainly have approved. The casting is superb. It was fascinating to see a relatively young Donald McIntyre as the Dutchman; his wonderful bass-baritone as powerful and authoritative as in his more recent performances as Wotan. Catarina Ligendza is a particularly convincing Senta with a voice to match her very striking physical beauty. I was particularly impressed by Herrman Winkler's Eric. This character is often portrayed as a rather subsidiary figure and frankly, a bit of a wuss. Winkler's very powerful and rich tenor, coupled with very impressive acting imbued his role with real significance and tragedy. Some (real) critics point out that this opera is perhaps the least "Wagnerian" of his operas and therefore in some way inferior to his later works. I would agree that it is obviously less earnest and philosophical than his other operas but all the more entertaining for that. The third act is almost like Gilbert and Sullivan in terms of wonderfully catchy tunes, amusing libretto and exuberant action by a large chorus. It really is great fun and a revelation to anyone who is only familiar with Wagner's later, more heavy operas. My only (slight) reservation is that the lip-sync is sometimes a little wayward and the actors facial expressions do not always accurately reflect the more intense emotions of the voice.Read more ›

Considering that it was made in 1975 this film version of one of Wagner's most approachable operas has excellent picture quality and sound. The orchestra and singers are outstanding. Particularly good are Donald McIntyre as the Dutchman, Catarina Ligendza as Senta and Bengt Rundgren, rich-voiced as Senta's father. The acting is generally very good and the production is excellent, really conveying the true feel of opera but still presenting a visually exciting and interesting drama for the screen. There are moments where the special effects are not quite what one would expect today and occasionally it is obvious that this is a studio production, but I was surprised how rarely this became apparent in a film from 1975. I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging and entertaining this film is whilst remaining absolutely authentic and true to Wagner's vision.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw a performance of this opera many years ago at Sadler's Wells, with a very young Donald MacIntyre singing sublimely as the Steersman. On this DVD he has matured into the title role and gives an outstanding performance. This production is filmed realistically instead of being a stage production in an opera house, and benefits enormously from this. It convinces as the performers on board the two ships really are soaked by the spray, and any theatre production would find it difficult to compete. I recall that at Sadler's Wells the way that the Dutchman's ship made its entrance was totally convincing - I nearly fell off my seat as I thought the ship was going to sail right into the stalls. A month later I saw the same opera at Covent Garden, and all that inferior production could offer was a bare platform that rocked and did nothing for the viewer.

Wagner - Der Fliegende Hollaender [1975]

Except for the presence of Donald McIntyre as the Dutchman and some quite impressive storm sequences in the first act there is little to recommend this budget production with very routine performances (to be kind).

The film quality is good, the lip sych poor, and the singers obviously having trouble getting inside their roles miming in a film studio. Even the sound gives a hard metallic edge to the voices.

Almost any opera house based performance is preferable, I particularly like the 1989 Savonlinna Opera festival production with its dramatic setting.

Unless you are a McIntyre fan try something else.
