The Leipzig Holländer Back in Business

The second performance of Michael von zur Mühlen's controversial production of Der fliegende Holländer at the Oper Leipzig will be tomorrow, Friday 14 th November.

The violent video clips which were added just a moment before the premiere started will not be shown. The press office say that they will be showing the performance as it was at the general rehearsal.

James Johnson was scheduled to sing the Holländer part, but after the premiere he refused to sing in the production any more, obviously not being comfortable with Michael von zur Mühlen's concept.

Wolfgang Brendel, is going to sing the title part in all the next performances which will be shown as scheduled.
