Synopsis by Mark Deming

One of the great diva of the American operatic stage, Joan Sutherland closed the book on her career as a live performer in 1981 with her starring role in this production of Giacomo Meyerbeer's drama, which contrasts the beauty and romance of 16th Century France with the corruption which led to the slaughter of thousands of Protestants in the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre. Les Huguenots was staged for Opera Australia by director Lotfi Mansouri; the cast also includes Amanda Thane, Anson Austin, and Suzanne Johnston.
