On June 16, 2024, Gabriela Scherer will sing the role of Senta in Der fliegende Holländer at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dūsseldorf in a new Vasily Barkhatov production led by Axel Kober. She will share the stage with Michael Volle in the title role, Bogdan Taloș as Daland, Jussi Myllys as Erik, Anna Harvey as Mary, and David Fischer as the Steuermann. Additional performances will be on June 21, 12, 29, July 3, and 6.
