Summary

Three of the greatest voices of the operatic stage, Luciano Pavarotti, Marilyn Horne and Joan Sutherland, are united in this performance of Strauss's frothy operetta "Die Fledermaus". Staged in 1990 by the Royal Opera House of Covent Garden by John Cox, this performance marked Sutherland's final appearance at the Royal Opera House; Richard Bonynge conducts the orchestra. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
