Opera Maine presents its first-ever production of Wagner's The Flying Dutchman. The cursed captain of a ghostly ship comes ashore every seven years in search of faithful love that will set him free.

A message from Opera Maine: Opera Maine has made the very difficult decision to cancel our July 2020 production of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman. Although we had held out hope that we would all be able to come together this summer, we now realize that it would not be in the best interest of public safety for our artists and audiences to risk exposing each other to a resurgence of the Corona virus.
As a current ticket holder, here is what you need to know:
