Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

178 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a performance of Lucia that literally made Joan Sutherland a star overnight. And no wonder. Her enormous, sumptuous voice seemed made for the role of the hapless young woman, driven mad by her fate. When Sutherland sang Lucia's famous "mad scene" it drove audiences, well, mad. Her cascading vocal embellishments seemed both unending and superhuman, but she tossed them off with the élan of an Olympic gymnast dazzling the crowd with a gold-medal performance. But then, Sutherland's voice was always golden
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

185 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,706 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 )

99 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,675 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

The great Joan Sutherland is Amina, the innocent orphan who sleepwalks her way into scandal.

La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

69 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donizetti's comedy gets a thrilling combination of brilliant singing and impish humor to make it fizz like Champagne. Joan Sutherland, the charming tomboy Marie, has fallen for Luciano Pavarotti as Tonio, who shows how happy he is by nailing nine high Cs in a single aria. Marie's "aunt" fights an uphill battle to turn the girl into a proper young society lady, until Marie is rescued by Tonio and the entire regiment of "fathers" who have raised her. "Delightful" doesn't begin to describe it
Lakmé by Léo Delibes( Recording )

63 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Lakme' is een in India spelende opera van een componist die vooral bekend werd door zijn balletten 'Sylvia' en 'Coppelia'. De vocale delen 'Lakme, ton doux regard se voila', 'Ah, ou va le jeune indoue' (bijgenaamd de 'Klokjesaria'), 'Tu m'as donne le plus doux reve' en 'Viens, Mallika' worden wel eens apart uitgevoerd. Het laatste stuk is een duet dat plotseling populairwerd toen het als muziek in een t.v.-spotje van Veilig Verkeer Nederland werd gebruikt. De 'Air de danses' (of 'Ballet der Bajaderen') wordt ook wel apart gespeeld

I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

82 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
