The sea’s stormy violence and calm unending beauty influenced 19th-century artists such as Coleridge, Melville, Schubert, and Turner. In The Flying Dutchman, Richard Wagner evokes the ocean’s elemental power with youthful strength and vivid theatricality. Plumb the depths of human sensibility as we navigate Wagner and the Romantics’ portrayal of the sea.
