Established at the beginning of the 18th century, at the initiative of Victor Amédée II, then of Charles Emmanuel III, the Teatro Regio was designed by the architect Benedetto Alfieri.

 

It opened on December 1740, and was for a long time one of the biggest theatres in the world (seating 2500 in its amphitheatre and five tiers of boxes). Magnificent decorations once adorned the auditorium, such as the vault painted by Bernardino Galliari. In the Napoleonic era, in order to expunge the emblems of the House of Savoy, the Regio was renamed the “Teatro Imperiale”. Its former name was restored in 1814 and it was redecorated in a neo-classical style, at the behest of King Charles Albert when Piedmont was reintegrated into the Kingdom of Savoy. After Italian unification and the move of the capital to Rome, the royal house transferred ownership of the theatre to the City of Turin.

 

One immortal figure stood out in the city’s musical life at the turn of the 20th century: Arturo Toscanini, notably with the premiere of La Bohème. With around 200 premieres, the Teatro Regio was then a serious contender with La Scala and of the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, but a terrible fire in 1936, which spared only its façade, forced it to close.

 

The new Teatro Regio opened in 1973 with Verdi’s "I Vespri Siciliani" performed by Maria Callas and Giuseppe di Stefano. It is now run as a private foundation. All year round the Teatro Regio hosts a vast range of initiatives and top-class musical performances, operatic works, ballets, symphonic concerts and vocal recitals. It has never ceased to be a witness to the history and events of Turin, Italy and Europe.

Synopsis

Der fliegende Holländer

Listen to the Music & Opera playlist : 

Der fliegende Holländer opera is the most interesting and attention grabbing play, set in French background and translated to various languages across the world. Der fliegende Holländer has been revived from the ancient age to present day performance. This has made the play to be more dramatic and humorous. In the past,

Le hollandais volant was sometimes referred to as the Dutch fielder and which is the most renowned as the ghost ship. It is also referred to as " Der fliegende Holländer" in German, which is the unique heading of the play by Richard Wagner. 

HISTORY
The history of the play is deep and not easy to trace the facts of its origin. The action takes place in the Cape of Good Hope, where the Dutch ship is caught in a snowstorm. Captain Daland is begged by the crew to look for a safe haven but he refuses and locks himself in the log cabin. The storm still increase and the captain defy the heaven to submerge the vessel. The play was revived in 1834 by a German playwright Heinrich Heine. The play was further changed to another version in 1843 by Richard Wagner.

Act 1
An aggressive storm blows the Norwegian fishing vessel away from home. The captain urges his crew to rest and leaves a youthful steersman in control, whom falls into slumber. All of a sudden a galleon drops an anchor to the boat. Captain Daland vows to navigate around the Cape of Good Hope. He is determined to get a lady who will be true to him till his demise. The captain later meets the Flying Dutchman, who later promises to marry Dalands daughter. The captain leads the Dutchman to his residence.

Act 2
The story of the Flying Dutchman is well-known. A portrait of him is hanged in the team leader's house, the women teases Senta about her lover, Erik. Mary declines to amuse the girls narrating the story of the Dutchman with a song. Erik comes in to announce the return of Daland boat, and the sailors are welcomed by the women. With a lot of anxiety Erik declares his love for Senta. Finally Senta leaves Erik and accepts the Dutchman proposal of falling in love with her, and this makes Daland to rejoice.

Act 3
The Daland vessel and the Dutchman's ship are anchored at the dockside, where the Norwegian women bring foodstuffs and drinks to the Dutchman's ship. Regardless of their mockery, no one replies to them. Out of fear the women hands in the food to Norwegian men in its place. Senta finally runs to the quayside and Erik follows her, who is hopeless that she has abandoned him to an alien. The scene ends with the vanishing of the Dutch ship and the crew. Finally Senta meets the Dutchman.
