Jan Philipp Gloger’s controversial Bayreuth production of Wagner’s Die Fliegende Holländer was greeted with huge acclaim. Conducted by Christian Thielemann, the production features Samuel Youn, Ricarda Merbeth, and Franz-Josef Selig. This production was recorded live at the Bayreuth Festival Theatre, July 2013.

‘‘Christian Thielemann and Das Festspielorchester received the biggest cheers, and rightly so: their account – thrillingly intense and demonic, while respecting of the sweeter passages – was superlative.’’ - The Financial Times

 “The excellent Mr. Youn is a sympathetic and suffering Dutchman who sings with dignity touched with anguish.’’ - The New York Times
