Maria Callas

Maria Callas was one of the greatest singers in the history of the human voice and personifies the opera diva in the classical sense. She was a singular superstar during the 50s, with details of her private lives commented on in the international press, on the front pages no less. The year 1951 - all of Italy celebrated the 50th anniversary of Verdi's death - marked the beginning of her unique career. "I Vespri Siciliani" was given at the Florentine festival during the celebrations in honor of Verdi. That recording is included in this collection, as well as all other Verdi operas in which Maria Callas can be heard in the studio or live on stage, as a part of this tribute to the great artist who wrote a new chapter in vocal history with the major female roles in Rigoletto, La Traviata, Il Trovatore, Un ballo in maschera, La forza del destino, Aida, Macbeth and Nabucco. The original albums and live recordings presented here are inportant documents of a unique artist - and some of these recordings from the years in which she was at the peak of her abilities, have become as legendary as Maria Callas herself.
