Presented by Ira Siff
Duration: 90 minutes
Part of the Opera Duos series

Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti. Maria Callas and Giuseppe di Stefano. Plácido Domingo and Mirella Freni. Renata Tebaldi and Mario del Monaco. Each were consummate musicians in their own right, but when they performed together, the combined force of their star power was electric. Dynamic duos are what operatic legends are made of, leaving audiences breathless, in tears, and entranced with their musical and dramatic chemistry. But what stories are behind some of these great partnerships? What were the secret musical ingredients that combined with such legenday success? In this three-part series, Met radio commentator Ira Siff takes us on a musical journey with some of the power duos of opera to discover how they created the special connections that kept audiences wanting more.
