Pavarotti and Sutherland: We’ll always have Paris!

How about a trip to Paris! Or just singing about the French capital?

It’s of course time for the duet Parigi, o cara from Verdi’s opera La Traviata.

And only the best in the business will do: Dame Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti!

This duet is from the 1983 Sutherland/Pavarotti Gala Concert in the Concert Hall at Sydney Opera House.  The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra is conducted by Richard Bonynge.

We’ll always have Paris! And I believe that this Sutherland/Pavarotti Gala is available out there on DVD.
