Sutherland tribute to feel better by

This is a singer I have adored since my early days of study. That she should have endured a dreadful fall in her lovely garden and done quite a bit of damage to her legs makes me very protective of her, and so I delight in including here some early interviews and performances to cheer us all up.

Dear Lady, feel better. You have given so many Golden moments to the world. Heal quickly and be well knowing you are beloved by your fans around the world.

Such an interesting clip with the little explanation of it all before. No pandering or talking down but very accessible to all. Fantastic cast, Joan Sutherland, Nicolai Gedda, Mildred Miller, Jerome Hines, Charles Anthony, my great and good friend, and the baritone Tito Gobbi. 1968
