Maria Callas was one of the outstanding soprano singers of the 20th century. Ninety years after her birth, this diva’s extraordinary voice and acting – captured on albums, CDs and DVDs – continue to enchant people the world over.
1. Viva La Divina!
Born in New York City on 2 December 1923, Maria Callas was adored by both public and critics alike for her vocal technique and dramatic gifts. Her repertoire ranged from serious classical operas to the bel canto works of Donizetti, Bellini and Rossini; to the masterpieces of Verdi and Puccini; and even to Wagner. Her talents led to her being hailed as La Divina. She is seen here rehearsing for her title role in Medea at Covent Garden, June 1959.
