About this Recording

KANAWA, Kiri Te: Portrait (A) (PAL)

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's story has all the best elements of an operatic fairytale. Coming from a part-Maori background she went on to become the world's most famous and best-loved female opera star. In this definitive profile, Kiri Te Kanawa talks about her life and her career in a series of revealing in-depth interviews, including excerpts from concerts, opera performances and rehearsals. As a special feature on this DVD you can see highlights from three memorable concert performances, comprising arias and songs by Puccini, Verdi, Handel, Mozart and others.
