Joan Sutherland's Day

video

Although there are other operas that I prefer to Lakme, "Viens Mallika/Flower duet" is my absolute, most favorite aria and the 1967 Monte Carlo Opera with Joan Sutherland is my most favorite recording of said song. I know, there are better quality and probably better sounding recordings but this one has very special family memories attached to it so it will forever remain the closest to my heart.
