Most widely held works by Joan Sutherland
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
165 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Met debut of soprano Joan Sutherland was one of the great evenings in the history of the company, and this broadcast, recorded only a few days after that memorable first night, captures the near hysteria that Sutherland's spectacular performance unleashed. Lucia's descent into insanity is superbly conveyed in her sensational account of the famous mad scene. Richard Tucker is an ardent Edgardo and Frank Guarrera plays Enrico, Lucia's scheming brother
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
158 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Norma may be the most challenging soprano role in all of Italian opera. Only the very greatest have the technical mastery and vocal acumen to convey all the facets of this virtuosic part. With this legendary cast, everything comes together in this bel canto masterpiece. Joan Sutherland's ravishingly beautiful voice can do anything Bellini's spectacular vocal line requires. As Norma's friend Adalgisa, Marilyn Horne proves that mezzos can sing as gloriously as sopranos. Together they sent audiences into a frenzy. Add poetic Carlo Bergonzi as the man they both love and rich-voiced Cesare Siepi as Norma's father, and you have one of the all time great broadcasts
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
106 editions published between 1956 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The legendary Joan Sutherland takes on the role of Donna Anna in this star-studded broadcast, displaying the full range of the character's feelings, from fury to mourning to revenge. Sutherland's singing perfectly balances floating legato lines with fiery coloratura. James Morris is the libertine of the title, a ruthless man in the guise of a handsome, charismatic aristocrat. Gabriel Bacquier sings his servant, Leporello, and Julia Varady is the besotted Donna Elvira

"In a feud between the Scottish families of Ravenswood and Lammermoor, Enrico has gained the upper hand over Edgardo, murdering his kinsmen and usurping his estates. By the time of the opera's action, in the late 17th century, Enrico's fortunes have begun to wane; in political disfavor, he stakes all on uniting his family with that of Arturo, whom he means to force his sister, Lucia, to marry."--Container

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty

Bonaldo Giaiotti is the mysterious Count Rodolfo and Colette Boky sings Lisa, the jealous innkeeper who wants Elvino for herself. Richard Bonynge conducts

'Lakme' is een in India spelende opera van een componist die vooral bekend werd door zijn balletten 'Sylvia' en 'Coppelia'.

Het laatste stuk is een duet dat plotseling populairwerd toen het als muziek in een t.v.-spotje van Veilig Verkeer Nederland werd gebruikt.

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
51 editions published between 1960 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
