"In her own time there was a tendency to take Sutherland for granted, so consistent were her high standards of technique, musicianship and, yes, acting. Her total command of the stage was always formidable." (Gramophone)

Regis presents a tribute to the incomparable soprano Joan Sutherland. Her artistry is showcased in three CDs of varied repertoire. The first displays her Handelian credentials, the second features the arias of Verdi and Bellini which established her reputation and the third presents the principal tracks from her incredibly successful solo albums, The Art of the Prima Donna Vols. 1&2.
