Joan Sutherland

The Reluctant Prima Donna

(NVC Arts)

Anyone who admired the late Australian prima donna will enjoy this hour-long DVD. A film biography, it celebrates the legend not through archive footage but a series of interviews with Richard Bonynge and colleagues.

Best of all is a hilarious cameo from Franco Zeffirelli. Sutherland was a star who didn’t behave like one, which is why people loved her.
