Opera Wednesday

Nothing succeeds in opera quite like a well-written Mad Scene, and Donizetti wrote one of the best in his opera Lucia di Lammermoor. And one of the best interpreters of that Mad Scene is the great Joan Sutherland. Here she is in her native Australia, in a performance from 1986 with the Australian Opera. Although it doesn't say so, I'm guessing the conductor is her husband, Richard Bonynge.
