Pavarotti arias A-Z: L for “Lunge da lei”

My series of posts with Pavarotti arias A-Z continues. Let’s go!

Today is the letter L for “Lunge da lei” which is a wonderful aria from the Verdi opera La Traviata.

This recording is taken from the Decca recording of the complete opera conducted by Richard Bonynge.

Guess what! Look out for a new aria tomorrow!

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.
