Summary
"In tradition of grand opera, Dame Joan Sutherland's farewell performance to the operatic stage in Giacomo Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots is a gala triumph of spectacle, pageantry and dance. This technically complex production captures the horror and tragedy of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, as well as the splendor of romance of 16th century France"--Container
