| || Lucrezia Borgia is not one of Donizetti's masterpieces, but nonetheless can be enormously stage worthy. Despite a wonderful piece or two for tenor and baritone and the justly famous "Il Segreto" for mezzo, most of the burden falls upon the shoulders of the heroine. As in Lucia, if there isn't a great Lucrezia, it's not a great Lucrezia!!|
In this DVD of the 1980 Lucrezia Borgia at Covent Garden, Dame Joan Sutherland and tenor Alfredo Kraus star in Donizetti's tale of sixteenth century opulence and decadence. Joan Sutherland is unquestionably the unsurpassed Lucrezia of all-time, and this production at Covent Garden showcases her incomparable coloratura technique. Bel canto specialist (and La Stupenda's husband) Richard Bonynge conducts The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in this Historic performance.
Cheaper than Amazon...? Joan Sutherland Covent Garden Lucrezia 1980.
"This 1980 Covent Garden production of Donizetti's opera based on the infamous dramatic heroine was undertaken so that one of the few sopranos who would dare tackle the fearsome range of Lucrezia Borgia-- Dame Joan Sutherland-- could do so in a setting amenable to her talent. And tackle it she does... Sutherland shows she has the sheer chops to overcome Donizetti's piling on difficulty after vocal difficulty. From the prologue's "Com e Bello," Sutherland never lets up through her gripping final scene of intense anguish and melodrama. Richard Bonynge conducts the Orchestra of the supporting cast-- Alfredo Kraus, Anne Howells, and Stafford Dean-- performs ably in Sutherland's wake." --Kevin Filipski
Lucrezia Borgia Poison Goblet
The Lucrezia Borgia Poison Goblet
This goblet resembles a late 15th century goblet and it bears the Borgia double-headed phoenix crest. It
also has the initials "L.B.", for our girl Lucrezia, on it. There is a secret panel behind the knob that opens up to an ample sized cavity. Would Lucrezia have used something like this? Or would her brother, Cesare, have been more likely to use it? In any event it is a great conversation piece,and is sure to get you talking about this infamous family.
Priced at 250 pounds.

|This vinyl Pope Alexander VI is a 10 inch five-way jointed male Cissette. He's the father of that infamous duo, Caesare and Lucrezia Borgia. A pope with children you say? Well things were different then, in fact, he had many mistresses. Apparently he was hard to resist. First off, his combed back, graying brown hair worn under a white satin zucchetto, not to mention his blue eyes give him a handsome, distinguished look. Then there are his papal robes that are white with pale gold, and a brocade cassock that has three rows of four buttons running down the center front. The matching robe worn over the cassock features a cope (short cape) and white duchess cuffs on the long sleeves. White tights and white satin slippers, with gold metallic embroidery, on his feet completes Pope Alexander VI, as seen on Showtime's vaunted series, The Borgias©. A 2012 Spring edition from Madame Alexander's Arts Collection. Suitable for ages 14 and up.|
