Dame Joan Sutherland returns in her signature role
5 June 2001 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

After a four year absence, Joan Sutherland returned triumphantly to the Met, in the role which assured her international fame at Covent Garden in 1959. So, 23 years later, in her early to mid 50s, she gave a performance of astounding facility and musical sensitivity in this TV recording, which later became this classic video.

Though, she made one more "Lucia" video two years later, this Met production captures Sutherland's definitive Lucia for posterity. The conductor, the orchestra, and the rest of the cast is also impressive. Alfredo Kraus, in the role of Lucia's lover matches her musicality, in a performance with all the elements which have defined the veteran tenor's trademark. It is a historic opera video. One, no opera fan can miss, and preferably own.
