About

La Vestale with Maria Callas is a document of extraordinary historical and musical value. On opening night, the 7th of December 1954, La Scala Theatre entrusted the directing of this neoclassical masterpiece to Luchino Visconti, his debut in lyrical opera. The tireless master worked hard to create a production based on the charm and art of the Divine Callas.

This is an extremely interesting artistic journey, accompanied by truly fascinating images.

Director: Luchino Visconti
