To write operas of the cursed ship inspired Wagner not only the reputation of the Flying Dutchman, but also a personal experience. The composer had fled to escape from creditors and culminated in a stormy voyage from the northern shores of England schooner, which had fallen into several storms. During the flight to London was Richard Wagner married two years with Minna planer and the first marital crisis is already behind them. The young actress is true because it gave the theater, has endured with him all the hardships of poverty and patiently enduring his moods yet for aspiring Wagner's ideal of faithful women did not meet, and therefore create your own feminine ideals. The first such woman was a figure of Senta, devoted to her husband to death. She begins a series of Wagner's female characters, whose own sacrifice will bring salvation male hero. The Flying Dutchman Wagner finally embarked on a prokomponovaného musical drama, so typical of his future work. The premiere took place under the composer in Dresden in 1843. Today, this work is one of the most frequently cited Wagner's operas to the Czech opera stages. The production was created to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.
