This review is from: Wagner : Der Fliegende Hollander [DVD]  (DVD)
And I do. It's such a relief to see it staged traditionally instead of the dreaded Regietheater productions which can distract enough to ruin a performance. For me it was also interesting to see a late performance by Behrens whom I saw as Brunnhilde many years ago. It is also an insight into the Savonlinna festival as I've never been there. You have to make allowances for the changes in sound quality, but all in all thoroughly enjoyable without being electrifying.
