Joan Sutherland in 1990

This is more about Marilyn Horne than Joan Sutherland… I’m posting it anyway.

A day after the Lincoln Center concert with Sutherland, Horne, & Pavarotti and the New York Philharmonic, I was at Martin Katz’s apartment when Horne was there. We were watching part of the concert video, a Sutherland/Horne duet.

Martin: “We have a choice. We can look at your [Horne’s] mouth or Joan’s chest.”

Horne: “I was wearing 4-inch heels and Joan was barely wearing SHOES!”
