Re-live two magical evenings when Joan Sutherland sang first with Luciano Pavarotti, then with Marilyn Horne  under the sails of the Sydney Opera House. Recorded in 1983 and 1985, these gala concerts are conducted by Richard Bonynge, and feature three of the greatest voices of all time singing arias and duets from their signature opera roles.

Joan Sutherland, 'La Stupenda', is sublime in some of her best-loved arias – 'Les oiseaux dans la charmille' from The Tales of Hoffmann, Verdi's 'Addio del passato', Cilea's 'Io son l'umile ancella' and Handel's 'Tornami a vagheggiar' – including many of the jewels of the bel canto repertoire that was her speciality. Luciano Pavarotti performs some of the great tenor arias, including 'Vesti la giubba' from Pagliacci, 'Una furtiva lagrima' from Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore, and 'Recondita armonia' from Tosca. Marilyn Horne shines in spectacular, passionate arias by Handel, Rossini and Meyerbeer, as well as the lush beauty of 'Mon coeur s'ouvre à ta voix' from Saint-Saëns' Samson et Dalila.

And Sutherland comes together with Pavarotti and Horne for duet performances shaped and perfected by their many years appearing alongside each other on stage and recordings: 'Brindisi' and 'Parigi, o cara' from La Traviata, 'Prendi: l'anel ti dono' from Bellini's La Sonnambula, 'Sulla tomba che rinserra' from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, the Flower Duet ('Sous le dôme épais') from Lakmé and the Barcarolle ('Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour') from The Tales of Hoffmann.

This double DVD restores to the catalogue two landmark events, and performances never to be forgotten.
