Dame Joan Sutherland: Verdi - Attila, 'Santo di patria... Allor che I forti corrono'

Singer: Joan Sutherland

Dame Joan Alston Sutherland, OM, AC, DBE (7 November 1926 - 10 October 2010) was an Australian dramatic coloratura soprano noted for her contribution to the renaissance of the bel canto repertoire from the late 1950s through to the 1980s. One of the most remarkable female opera singers of the 20th century, she was dubbed La Stupenda by a La Fenice audience in 1960 after a performance of the title role in Handel's Alcina. She possessed a voice of beauty and power, combining extraordinary agility, accurate intonation, "supremely" pinpoint staccatos, a splendid trill and a tremendous upper register, although music critics often complained about the imprecision of her diction. Her friend Luciano Pavarotti once called Sutherland the "Voice of the Century"; Montserrat Caballé described the Australian's voice as being like "heaven"...

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Allor che i forti corrono come leoni al brando
Stan le tue donne, o barbaro, sui carri lagrimando;
Ma noi, donne italiche, cinte di ferro il seno,
Sul fumido terreno sempre vedrai pugnar.
