Located at the iconic Sydney Opera House, Tucker teamed up again with visionary Conductor David Robertson, to create an immersive production of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman.  Robertson helmed the Sydney Symphony under Tucker’s sail inspired screens, with an incredible cast including Eric Owens in the title role and Orla Boylan as Senta.  Katy employed Wagner’s musical leitmotifs to visually communicate the themes and characters in this epic opera.  Though Wagner’s use of leitmotifs aren’t as defined in The Flying Dutchman, as they are in later works, Tucker capitalized on these repetitive tunes to take the audience on a visually engaging journey.

To find out more about Tucker’s process and her approach to the Sydney Symphony Flying Dutchman, read this interview with Yvonne Frindle.
