Description
Singing one of the great coloratura roles in which she triumphed, Dame Joan Sutherland (a.k.a. "La Stupenda") portrays the ill-starred Anne Boleyn opposite the formidable Henry VIII of bass James Morris in this live, visually lavish production from 1984. Directed by Lotfi Mansouri, it also includes Canadian mezzo Judith Forst as an exceptional Jane Seymour, Michael Myers as Lord Percy, and Ben Heppner as Hervey.

"Sutherland sang the long and demanding role of Anna Bolena with the freshness, confidence and vigor of earlier years. This is truly a wonderful document of a special theatrical event…. The magnificent Canadian mezzo soprano Judith Forst turned in a riveting performance as the guilt-torn Jane Seymour. Their great Act II scena e duetto, 'Dio, che mi vedi in core,' was a show-stopper, with the two singers capping their performance with a searing unison high C at the end."—Opera Canada

"[Sutherland] is touching in her bridal veil in the mad scene and lightens her tone exquisitely for 'Al dolce guidami,' yet she erupts with a searing look of revulsion when Enrico's wedding band strikes up. 'Non v'ha sguardo' and 'Coppia iniqua' are sung down a step solely to allow her to take the obligatory unwritten high notes at the end; her vocalism is still prodigious. James Morris … offers fine legato singing, and he does his monologue with regal command.… [Richard] Bonynge conducts with enormous love for the score."—Opera News
