On Reflections


Richard Bonynge and his late wife Dame Joan Sutherland were one of the greatest musical collaborations the musical world has seen. For the 40 years of Dame Joan’s singing career Richard Bonynge was her coach, support and conductor. Richard Bonynge’s own career has been prolific in the opera theatre, the recital hall and the recording studio, and in the world of bel canto and French opera his work is unsurpassed. His research has uncovered a huge body of work in bel canto and French opera that has led the revival of many of these works. Richard Bonynge talks about his life and career with Doug Beecroft in a special two-part Reflections on 3MBS.  Part 2 is at 4pm on Sunday 4 November, repeated at 3pm on Friday 9 November.  If you missed Part 1 you can listen on Past Programs on our website.
