We have a set of musical bookends as it were. Der fliegende Holländer in the very far West and eastern U.S.

In the far, far West, Hawaii Opera Theater will give 3 performances of Holländer on February 13, 15 and 17. With some terrific singers well known to San Franciscans: Former Adler Fellow Melody Moore, Jay Hunter Morris and rising star Ryan McKinney, this production will be conducted byJohn Keenan. Here is the link to their website:

Washington National Opera revives its Dutchman with a cast which includes Eric Owens, Jay Hunter Morris, Christiane Libor and Ain Anger conducted by Philipe Auguin – March 7 through March 21. It seems that Jay Hunter Morris is literally flying from one Erik to another.

For more information you can look at the WNO website:
