    La Stupenda sings the part of Desdemona in Verdi's Otello.
    Sydney Opera House, January 31, 1981 Act III Duet


    Otello: Angelo Marenzi
    Conductor: Carlo Felice Cillario

    Sutherland sang the role of Desdemona very early in her career but it was also one of her last parts and luckily this live performance has survived. It is a unique musical document.

    Joan Sutherland sings 'Se inconscia...'' from Otello live in Sydney
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4dGiMp8n44

    Sorry about the quality. At least we have some video of these beautiful live performances in Sydney in 1981. We can also get a real sense of how Joan's voice filled the theatre with such an opulent sound


    Joan Sutherland, in one of her rare performances in non-coloratura repertoire after her 1959 Lucia, sings the second part of "Piangea cantando" and the "Ave Maria" from Verdi's Otello. Emilia is sung by Heather Begg and the conductor, surprisingly, is Carlo Felice Cillario (Sydney, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TZM3DsQ20o1981

    This 50 piece is an anthology of Moffo and a few others of lighter voiced sopranos. Excellent.

    What voices and excitement.
    (Puccini: Tosca) Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, August 1, 1957. Act One Duet LIVE

    Floria Tosca: Zinka Milanov
    Mario Cavaradossi: Franco Corelli
    Il barone Scarpia: Giangiacomo Guelfi
    Conductor: Alexander Gibson
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZVtnYJeA1M


    ---------------------------------------------------
    I HAVE NOT GIVEN ZINKA ENOUGH SPACE YET. THERE ARE VOCAL HIGHLIGHTS ON THIS POST SHOWING HER GLORY..

    Zinka was glorious - Enjoy
    What others say about Zinka:


    Arturo Toscanini: “Our Verdi would have loved this voice.…I have rarely heard such a soprano for Verdi.…If I would conduct again the complete Rigoletto, she would be my Gilda.”

    Rosa Ponselle: “I will say emphatically that her Leonora in Trovatore, among other roles she sang splendidly, was the peer of any soprano's in my experience. (Yes, my own included.) .…Milanov's was an amazingly beautiful voice.…In the end, she earned a place in operatic history and it was an Olympian one.”

    Maria Callas: “I was afraid she could see straight through me. If you have any false part, as an artist or a person, she will see it. She cannot be fooled. She was gracious, but still I was quite intimidated.”

    Giulietta Simionato: “…I positively aver that if she had performed with regularity in Italy, she would have been adored by this most discerning and fanatical of publics.…In her presence, certain other sopranos would not have been ranked supreme in the Italian theaters. This I emphatically assure you.”

    Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge: (She) "What so impressed us about her Desdemona was how clear the voice was, and how instantly available to the ear at every dynamic level. There was no hesitation [in phonation], no noise or buzz in the tone. The sound would hover in the hall after she had ceased to produce it. And the beauty! She could still make indescribably beautiful tone and sculpt terribly moving phrases. We always went to hear her when we could, and her vocal way in Otello is a bright memory. Yes, I indeed thought of her when I returned to Desdemona myself in late career." (He) “Zinka Milanov was a great influence on both of us. Her luscious, creamy voice is one of the greatest sounds we ever heard, and we count ourselves very lucky to have been able to hear her many times. She is an adorable lady for whom we have the greatest respect and love.”

    Giuseppe Di Stefano: “There was not a greater soprano or singer. To say there was, I tell you it is not correct. She had rivals, not superiors. If she was trouble, it is because she wanted everything to be beautiful, that she is afraid someone betrays [doesn’t sing on] her level.…I can say that I am very happy that I have two beautiful recordings with Zinka, this has always given me great pleasure. Also, she is a model of the style in each opera [Forza and Gioconda]. She is not Italian, but she understands everything. Everything!”

    Robert Merrill: “The most glorious dramatic soprano I ever sang with!”

    Regina Resnik: “That great voice would resound around the Metropolitan Opera House long after she halted the note. Forte or piano, it didn’t matter—either one. I don’t have to put on a record to hear her voice when I want to, either. I can call that sound to mind any time I want just in my head. That’s what being unforgettable means.”

    Franco Corelli: “She was a wonderful singer. I admired her beauty. I also admired her style and technique. She had a voice that was both free and beautiful. I loved to sing with her.”

    Leontyne Price (telegram): “I salute as a fellow traveler the legend of you, the majesty of your career, the greatness of your artistry, and I thank you for the inspiration you have given me. Love and profound admiration, Leontyne”

    Christa Ludwig: “Zinka Milanov—this voice is really the voice of our century and not surpassed by other wonderful artists. Her recording of ‘Pace, pace’ is my heart’s inspiration.…”
