About

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 SerafinMaria 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 of her best-loved colleagues, the tenor Giuseppe di Stefano.

Recorded 1953
