Ever since Joan Sutherland’s historic first "Lucia" at Covent Garden in 1959, the critical acclaim for her interpretation of this role has been unending. And the praise for this performance by Dame Joan read as such:"Joan Sutherland is quite simply one of the musical miracles of this century. She lifted the cheering capacity audience to their feet in her famous role of Lucia di Lammermoor. She brought memorable musical life to the Donizetti heroine, who murders her bridegroom on her wedding night. By the time the spectacular mad scene rolled around in the third act, the great voice had blossomed into full splendour. She sang with effortless beauty through those dazzling vocal gymnastics. It has been over a quarter of a century since that historic first night in Covent Garden when Sutherland sang her first Lucia and a legend was born. It seems her voice has lost little of its freshness and beauty. What has been added is depth of experience absolute professionalism and a moving insight into the music of this role." –SUNDAY TELEGRAPHWhenever "La Stupenda" assumes the role of "Lucia" we can be sure that we are witnessing the stuff of legends. Indeed, we are fortunate to have a visual record of her "Lucia", which is without question one of the greatest achievements in opera this century.CAST (in order of appearance):NORMANNO…ROBIN DONALDENRICO…MALCOLM DONNELLY BRRAIMONDO…CLIFFORD GRANTLUCIA…JOAN SUTHERLANDALISA…PATRICIA PRICEEDGARDO…RICHARD GREAGERARTURO…SERGEI BAIGILDINCONDUCTOR…RICHARD BONYNGETHE AUSTRALIAN OPERA CHORUSTHE ELIZABETHAN SYDNEY ORCHESTRATHE AUSTRALIAN OPERA BALLET
