Joan Sutherland / Alfredo Kraus / Pablo Elvira
Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor (DVD)
With an exhilarating performance of her signature role, Dame Joan Sutherland (who 'owned' the part of Lucia for decades) captivates the audience in this elaborate production of Donizetti's bel canto masterpiece, taped during its celebrated 1982 run at the MET. Alfredo Krauss is her star-crossed lover and the MET forces deliver an outstanding performance under the impeccable direction of Richard Bonynge.
