Editorial Reviews

For the first time on DVD, enjoy the unforgettable Metropolitan Opera gala from 1987 with Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland! Two of the greatest opera stars of their time and long-time singing partners, Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland come together to perform four famous scenes from Acts I and III of Lucia di Lammermoor, Act III of La Traviata and Act III of Rigoletto. They are joined by the great Italian baritone Leo Nucci and conducted by Richard Bonynge. The scenes are complete and fully staged, making this unique from other DVDs of individual arias and ensembles.

From the Met, broadcast in 1987. Two great singers a little past their prime, but the Rigoletto Quartet alone makes this DVD worth owning.

In the Rigoletto, Dame Joan's voice opens up and is as full, agile, spikey and powerful as it had always been. Her final note in the quartet is vintage Dame Joan.

In the Traviata Dame Joan's voice is somewhat attenuated. I know Violetta is supposed to be at the end but Dame Joan's voice doesn't really warm up and although she is projecting emotion, it doesn't really come through in her vocals.

Some of Dame Joan's Lucia can be passed. Her top notes do not quite work.

And... whoever was responsible for her make up should have been shot. I've never seen her look so bad. I saw her even later in her career and she looked A-OK, make up is so important, particularly for video.

Luciano carries the timbre of the voice he had for years and years, so beautiful. My goodness that man could sing! Not everything worked for him here either. But he was an amazing showman and there were times that one could simply float on the cushion of his voice.

The supporting cast were all highly respected Met regulars, each wonderful singers in their own right. One can't help but be rivited to Isola Jones during the quartet, Luciano certainly was!Sutherland-Pavarotti-Bonynge Gala Concert, Opera Australia;

You can not ask for more than Joan Sutherland in perfect voice matched with Pavarotti before he got thin! A simply outstanding evening of glorious music with two legendary voices. If you like Italian opera, you will love this DVD.

I pleased that Decca have released this on DVD, since this is one of the best galas that the Met have put together.

This gala is recorded on January 11, 1987, and featuring Dame Joan Sutherland and Lucio Pavarotti in fully staged performances of Act 3 of La Traviata, Act 3 of Rigoletto and Act 1, Scene 2 and Act 3, Scene 3 of Lucia Di Lammermoor (Compared this to Dame Joan's 1982 Met performance that out on DVD), with the Met orchestra under the direction (As always with Dame Joan on the stage) of Richard Boynage.

Since it was on VHS for years, Met fans have been cavoring for a DVD release, and now they got their wish.

Nown only if the Met can reissued their 25th Anniversary Lincoln Center Gala on DVD!

I am not really a fan of 95% of Opera BUT the 5% that touches me is absolute magic, a celebration of the human spirit through the human voice. Listen to Sutherland and Pavarotti sing together and if you are not moved when you have listened to the absolute best that Opera has to offer then you may safely assume there is no opera that will ever appeal to you and you can safely turn your back on all Oera from then on.
