Sutherland's sensational debut recital album, long unavailable on it's own, reissued with photographs and rarely seen costume designs for the soprano's signature roles. When these recordings first appeared, Joan Sutherland was on the brink of a spectacular international career; just behind her was the sensation of her Royal Opera debut in Lucia di Lammermoor, early in 1959, by the end of which she had operatic London at her feet. Initially released as a pair of albums but soon enough compiled together, they were made in Kingsway Hall in the summer of 1959, and they caused a stir all of their own
