I read yesterday’s paper with a degree of sadness as the esteemed Mr. Tommasini chronicled the passing of the great coloratura soprano Joan Sutherland and details of her memorable career.
It is a worthy article if you haven’t read it, the link is above.
Recquiscat in Pace
Dame Joan Sutherland
b. 7th November 1926
d. 10th October 2010
“La Stupenda” was my generation’s answer to the great Callas, Joan Sutherland’s death is a loss .
Perhaps best remembered for her thrilling role as the mad Lucia,
Thank you dear Joan, we will miss you.
