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;Donizetti - Lucia di Lammermoor / Joan Sutherland, Alfredo Kraus, Pablo Elvira, Paul Plishka, Richard Bonynge, Metropolitan Opera;Cecilia & Bryn at Glyndebourne: Arias & Duets [HD DVD]; Three Tenors: In Concert; Luciano Pavarotti: Christmas at Notre Dame; 30th Anniversary Gala Concert / Pavarotti, Verrett, Sabbatini, Anderson, Cappuccilli, Kabaivanska, Furlanetto, Teatro Valli in Reggio Emilia Opera; Gala Concert at Royal Albert Hall;Sutherland-Horne- Pavarotti "Live From Lincoln Center"
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!
