Maria Callas Remastered - Bellini: I Puritani (1953)
Vincenzo Bellini, Tullio Serafin, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Until she achieved a triumph in the delicate coloratura role of Elvira in I puritani - in Venice in 1949 under the tutelage of maestro Tullio Serafin - Maria Callas had been making her name in dramatic roles, such as the epically scaled title role in Die Walküre, which she had been singing just days before. Her success in Bellini's final opera set her firmly on the path to bel canto supremacy. Joining her as Arturo in this 1953 recording is one ...

Verdi: La Traviata (complete opera live 1955) with Maria Callas, Giuseppe di Stefano, Carlo Maria Giulini, ...
Giuseppe Verdi, Orchestra e coro del Teatro alla Scala, ...

EMI Classics, 1998

This live recording of the 1955 Visconti production at La Scala is the best of the available Maria Callas Traviata s. Aside from a minor pitch problem or two, she's in great voice, coloring phrases to reveal character and investing the coloratura with variety and passion. Her "Addio del passato" is heart-breaking. She fully captures Violetta's pride and vulnerability in the scene with Germont, though her partner, Ettore Bastianini, sings ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Bellini: La Sonnambula (1957)
Vincenzo Bellini, Antonino Votto, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Like Lucia di Lammermoor and Elvira (I puritani), Amina, the gentle heroine of La sonnambula,was a role that had become associated with light-voiced coloratura sopranos. Callas brought both a new substance and subtlety to the role when Luchino Visconti staged it for her at La Scala in 1955. This recording was made two years later, when the production was revived.


Maria Callas Remastered - Bizet: Carmen (1964)
Georges Pretre, Choeurs Rene Duclos, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Towards the end of Callas's career, there were many rumours that she was planning to perform Carmen on stage. This was never to be, but Carmen became her penultimate complete recording of an opera - and her only complete recording of a French opera. With Georges Prêtre, one of her favoured conductors, and the ever-stylish Nicolai Gedda as her Don José, she captured every facet of the role. As Gramophone said when the set was first released: ...


Maria Callas: 30 Complete Operas Box Set
Maria Callas

Imports, 2011

The vocal wonder Maria Callas was born under the name Maria Cecilia Sophia Kalogeropoulos on 1 December 1923, entering a world that was soon to worship her - her father George first changed the Greek surname to `Callas' in 1929. However, he was not able to keep the family together and Maria's parents got divorced in 1936. The mother returned to her native Athens with Maria and Maria`s older sister. The future world star Maria Callas started ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Verdi: Il Trovatore (1956)
Giuseppe Verdi, Herbert von Karajan, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Like Norma, the role of Leonora in Il trovatore demands both bel canto finesse and considerable vocal and dramatic weight, but Callas sang it only some 20 times. This recording - in which she, Fedora Barbieri, Giuseppe di Stefano and Roland Panerai constitute a suitably impressive quartet of principals - marked her farewell to the complete role and also her final collaboration with Herbert von Karajan.

Maria Callas Remastered - Puccini: Tosca (1953)
Giacomo Puccini, Victor de Sabata, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

This Tosca, made in 1953 with the forces of La Scala, is a landmark in recording history.Conducted with searing intensity by Victor de Sabata, it teams Callas with two of her closest colleagues, the tenor Giuseppe di Stefano and the baritone Tito Gobbi - a performer who could rival Callas in dramatic finesse and power. Tosca's aria 'Vissi d'arte' (I lived for art) has come to be seen as Callas's personal manifesto.


Puccini: Tosca
Giacomo Puccini, Victor De Sabata, ...

EMI Classics, 1997

Maria Callas is at the top of her game, and still very much in her vocal prime. Her dramatic approach to "Tosca" is arguably even better captured in the live recordings from Covent Garden a decade later, but at that point her voice had lost some of its bloom; depending on your tastes, this may be the better example of her doing the role. Tito Gobbi owned the role of Scarpia, and considered it his finest characterization. Although he and Callas ...


Verdi: Rigoletto
Giuseppe Verdi, Tullio Serafin, ...

EMI Classics, 1997

Nobody steals the spotlight when Maria Callas is onstage, but Tito Gobbi never lets us forget that this show is called Rigoletto , not Gilda . Neither singer has one of the century's prettiest voices; both have dramatic presence, impact, and subtlety--based as much on their control of verbal nuance as on musicianship--that make their characters three-dimensional, the story meaningful, the emotions real, varied, and intense. His role is ...
