The Ghostly Ship and the Faithful Woman

A Dutch sea captain who once uttered an unfortunate curse is condemned to sail the seas for eternity.  His only salvation is to find a woman who will be faithful until death.  Once every seven years, he may go ashore in search of her.  On shore, the young girl Senta is transfixed by a portrait of the legendary Flying Dutchman.  With destiny calling her, Senta’s current boyfriend doesn’t stand a chance!
