Notes & Reviews:
Superstar soprano Dame Joan Sutherland gives a thrilling, nuanced performance in Delibe's Lakmé, a lush, lyrical, and exotic tale of a doomed romance between a priest's daughter and a British army officer set against a backdrop of 19th century British rule in India. Richard Bonynge captures the opera's melodically graceful score, drawing out Sutherland's sheer dramatic power and vocal beauty. Recorded 1976, Sydney Opera House.
