La Stupenda June 16, 2007

Posted by Jeff in French, Italian, Opera, Theater.

Joan Sutherland performs the “Salut à la France” from Donizetti’s La fille du regiment. I’m guessing this is from the early 1970s:

From the 1972 Met Opera tribute to the retiring Sir Rudolf Bing, Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti perform “Ah! Verrano a te sull’aure” from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor.
