Joan Sutherland Print by Michael Stennett (Large)

Artist and theatre designer Michael Stennett had a long working relationship with legendary soprano Joan Sutherland. The Met Opera Shop specially commissioned him to create this giclée print capturing Sutherland in her celebrated performance of the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor.

Stennett was introduced to Sutherland in 1966 and sent her several costume designs for some of the roles in her repertoire. He went on to design many productions for prominent opera companies in which she appeared, and also created portraits of the singer in some of her most celebrated roles.

“In the 40 years that I performed I have been fortunate to wear what I feel are some of the most beautiful costumes I have ever seen as the result of Michael’s labors. Of course I have my favorites, but the thrill never diminishes: stepping onto the stage, transformed by Michael’s magic into the character one is playing for the night. Michael has helped me to create my various ladies by designing gowns that transport me from the twentieth century to their respective periods.”  —Joan Sutherland, 2010
