[ Warner Classics Maria Callas Live Remastered / 2 CD - released 1/Feb/2019 ]
There are obvious parallels between Tosca - the passionate, but vulnerable Roman diva - and Maria Callas. 'Vissi d'arte' (I lived for art), the character's moving Act II aria, has acquired a particular symbolism since the soprano's death in 1977....

[ Warner Classics Maria Callas Live Remastered / 2 CD - released 1/Feb/2019 ]
Rossini is a pillar of bel canto opera, but he was less central to Callas's art and career than Bellini and Donizetti. She performed two of his comic works - Il barbiere di Siviglia and Il turco in Italia - and in 1952, with her mentor Tullio Serafin...

[ Warner Classics Maria Callas Live Remastered / 3 CD - released 1/Feb/2019 ]
