Anyone who was lucky enough to experience first-hand the magic of Joan Sutherland or Luciano Pavarotti will never forget it. And when they performed together, it was seldom anything less than an experience of a lifetime. This gala celebration showcases them in some of their most memorable roles and is a treasured reminder that not only did they have phenomenal voices, but they used them to touch our hearts in their own unique ways.
Conductor Richard Bonynge leads the Elizabethan Symphony Orchestra in this unforgettable performance from the Sydney Opera House, showcasing the world-renowned voices of opera luminaries Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne.

Opera greats Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland -- one of the most acclaimed tenors and one of the most beloved sopranos of the 20th century -- take the stage at the Met for a gala evening of opera scenes with special guest Leo Nucci.

After Cronulla-Sutherland's 14-4 loss in the major semi-final, Manly-Warringah expected the Sharks would be fired up for the Grand Final. And they were. Ian Heads wrote in the Sunday Telegraph the next day that It was a Grand Final as tough and dirty as any bar-room brawl. Alan Clarkson wrote in the Sun Herald The fare served up in the first half belonged in the Colosseum. The first half was not how the game's administrators would have wished to show-case rugby league, every tackle was loaded with menace and meant to damage. But from the melee Bob Fulton emerged and showed his unrivalled skill. Heads and Clarkson wrote of his "towering genius" and "football brilliance" respectively.
The Tuesday rematch in front of 33,552 was Manly's sixth game in twenty-four days. It was the second Grand Final in a row to end up going into a mid-week replay with the 1977 Grand Final between St George and Parramatta also needing a re-match to decide the Premiers after the original game had been a 9-all draw.
