Les Huguenots

After dominating the international opera stage for more than 30 years, Dame Joan Sutherland takes a final bow in her stunning farewell performance of Meyerbeer’s grand French opera. Now regarded as one of the most memorable nights in Australia’s musical history, Joan Sutherland’s formidable vocal skill is on full display throughout the demanding score, while conductor Richard Bonynge inspires orchestral brilliance at every turn.
