Although Wagner himself made it quite clear to King Ludwig II of Bavaria that the Flying Dutchman was among those works of his deemed fit to be performed in Bayreuth, the “Romantic Opera in three Acts” was not staged there till 1901, as the last of those ten. 1959 was a special year in “New Bayreuth”: by producing the earliest, Wieland Wagner had now presented all ten works under his own direction, in the first “Ring-free” year since the 1951 reopening – an abomination to hard-bitten old-school Wagnerians, for whom only the Ring and Parsifal genuinely belonged on the “green hill” of Bayreuth. There was once again heated discussion over the guiding principles governing the presentation of the festival – as reported, along with much else, in the well-informed and lively booklet note by Peter Emmerich. But Wieland confounded and convinced his critics with a rediscovery of his directorial idiom, described by him as “magic realism.” Musical success was achieved on the grand scale by the brilliant exponents of Senta and the Dutchman- and by the musically modern slim-line conductor, who had made his Bayreuth debut not long before in the new production of Tristan. Leonie Rysanek, whose singing gave vivid meaning to all the drama’s emotional aspects, also had the figure for the part- in her own words, she was the “slimmest Senta in the world.” With his powerful voice and darkly glowing male timbre, the inimitably elegant and empathetic George London remains without peer on this recording as elsewhere. Just as convincingly cast in its other roles, the work soon established itself in this second “New Bayreuth” staging even in its spiritual home. We would make a special point of observing that this historic audio document was captured not at the premiere performance, but during a second live recording on August 5, 1959.
