WELCOME TO
THE SUTHERLAND/BONYNGE REFERENCE CENTER


It is a happy coincidence that Dame Joan Sutherland's spectacular international career spanned a half century of rapid advances in print and recording technology.

Her legacy, perhaps first among the great voices, includes a phenomenal abundance of recordings that preserve for generations to come and with the utmost fidelity the vocal magic that is distinctly "La Stupenda's".

The available videos do not include any of her legendary Covent Garden performances as, unlike her Australian appearances, none appears to have been captured on film. Nevertheless, what is available is an operatic treasure trove.

This Reference Center is FanFaire's attempt to put together as completely as possible a compendium of the works that exist in print and on disc, by and about opera's fabled couple. This will remain a work in progress. Since Dame Joan retired from the operatic stage, she has made occasional public appearances, such as in connection with her autobiography, and she is still very much within the purview of today's music historians.

In addition, one only has to scroll down the list of reissued (and to be reissued) recordings to realize that there is today a Dame Joan Sutherland revival, which guarantees that we have not heard nor read the last of her, nor of her partner in life and music, Maestro Richard Bonynge who, far from retired, continues to delight audiences worldwide with his masterful reading of bel canto music.
