This unique 5 DVD collection brings together, for the first time, the legendary Australian soprano in four key dramatic coloratura roles that were cornerstones of her repertory – Marguerite de Valois in Les Huguenots, Marie in La fille du Régiment, and the eponymous heroines in Adriana Lecouvreur and Lucrezia Borgia. Accompanying them is the celebrated gala concert she gave in 1983 with her long-time colleague (and one-time protégée), Luciano Pavarotti, featuring extracts from several other major Sutherland roles, including Violetta (La Traviata), Ophélie (Hamlet) and, of course, her signature role, Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor). All four operas and gala concert were filmed in the iconic Sydney Opera House, and conducted by her husband, Maestro Richard Bonynge.
