Rossini goes right to the heart--or to the funny bone. But Wagner can be a hard sell. "There is nothing more terrible than boring Wagner," says Keith Warner, who's directing Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman" for Opera Pacific, opening today and running through Sunday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. "There is nothing more formidable. But that's why there's a huge onus on a conductor and director that it cannot and must not be boring."

Poor wandering ones! Though ye have surely strayed, Take heart of grace. Your steps retrace, Poor wandering ones . . . . In the distant past, the D'Oyly Carte wanderers may indeed have strayed.

Opera Pacific's new production of "The Flying Dutchman" has ideas, but they are not necessarily new or profound. It has a basically capable cast of young, promising American singers, but no fully formed artists or astonishing voices. It has, as well, a basically capable orchestra, if a bit on the puny side for Wagner. The production originated at Minnesota Opera, yet the company has enough pretension to place its top ticket prices at Orange County Performing Arts Center in the big leagues.
