In 1951 Joan Sutherland moved to England to pursue an operatic career after she won the Sun Aria Competition in Sydney. Based in London through the 1950s she and her husband Richard Bonynge refined her singing style to that of a dramatic coloratura soprano singing the bel canto repertoire. The recording of 'The Art of the Prima Donna' with the Royal Opera House Orchestra conducted by Francesco Molinari-Pradelli is still considered one of the great opera recordings.
