Norma by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
130 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,349 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

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

'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
La sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
52 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The basic plot of Bellini's tale of an innocent Swiss girl whose sleepwalking lands her in the middle of a scandal may be difficult to believe. But spectacular singers like Joan Sutherland and Nicolai Gedda sweep away plot concerns with their stylish, impassioned portrayals. Even the most hard-hearted curmudgeon would melt for Joan Sutherland as the tender Amina; her golden voice is radiant as it conveys Amina's purity and utterly dazzling conveying her joy. No wonder the Met audience went wild

I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
68 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 588 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
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
12 editions published between 1956 and 2009 in Italian and German and held by 518 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
La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
11 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in French and German and held by 486 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
