Der fliegende Hollander by R.Wagner, Korea National Opera

 Der fliegende Hollander or The flying Dutchman by R.Wagner. It has been presented in German language. It tells the story of a young man who cursed to roam the sea forever without rest and every seven years the waves will cast him upon the shore; if he can find a wife who will be true to him he will be released from his curse.

Watching the Wagner's operas in Korea National Opera is an unforgettable experience. Watch it and forget about your troubles, forget about your job and soak in really old Germanic culture. Played by professional operatic singers and conductors. However in my opinion it is better to read/review a bit about the show before for a more understandable. But this is by no means to turn you off but to draw you in instead. The staff at both the ticket kiosks and info points were very friendly and gentle.

Thanks a lot to Seoul Low for sponsoring my ticket. It was well worth the time and money. I would certainly recommend the experience.
