Lakme - Joan Sutherland
Joan Sutherland gives a thrilling, nuanced performance in Delibes' Lakme, the exotic tale of a doomed romance between a priest's daughter and a British army officer, set in India against the backdrop of nineteenth century British rule. Capturing the opera's melodically graceful score is Richard Bonynge, who draws out Sutherland's dramatic power and vocal beauty in the sublime Bell Song and Flower Duet.
