Dame Joan Alston Sutherland was an Australian dramatic coloratura soprano noted for her contribution to the renaissance of the bel canto repertoire from the late 1950s through to the late 1980s. Joan Sutherland - A Tribute traces almost 40 years of performing by one of 20th century's greatest divas. The book was published to commemorate Dame Joan Sutherland's farewell performances and retirement from the opera stage. Major roles and most memorable performances are highlighted through a wealth of fascinating memorabilia, costume sketches, and photographs from the Sutherland/Bonynge collection, most never before published. Personal introductions by Richard Bonynge (conductor, pianist and Joan's husband) and the Earl of Harewood, plus a thorough list of performances and a painstaking description of La Stupenda's career repertoire are the final touches that make this book a treasure for every opera lover.; 128 pages
