  1. Wow! What a feast! Thank you so much! How incredible are those voices of Dame Joan, and Pavarotti! How Blessed that she was our very own national Treasure!

  2. I was at the Sutherland, Pavarotti concert – just about mortgaged the house, but worth every penny – if you look closely you can see me in the audience, see I’m the one madly clapping. I would also love to see the Mozart concert in Vienna one of these days.

  3. I was playing in the orchestra for the Sutherland Pavarotti concert, great memories of working with these wonderful artists.

  4. Dame Joan Sutherland yes, in The Merry Widow, Oklahoma, Cats and yes, a Mozart Concert in Vienna around the corner from the InterContinental Hotel. As a kid, I was in raptures over the puppet show Tintookies. Anyone remember that?

  5. Wow! Thank you so much – I love them all and can’t wait to watch them one by one – but really hard to go past Dame Joan and Pavarotti.
