Scottish Opera’s production, directed by Harry Fehr, deals away with a lot of the mythology in a traditional reading of Wagner, instead setting the action on a remote Scottish oil-rig community in the 1970s.
Senta is obsessed by the painting of the Dutchman that hangs on the wall of the town hall. As a counterpoint to the 70s realism elsewhere, we create a backdrop of shifting, moving oil paintings to portray the storm and the huge tanker vessel that appears through it.
