About

In the moonlight, on the cursed field, Callas is charmed by Di Stefano... a cello insinuates a confession of the heart that she does not want to reveal... Gavazzeni’s orchestra shares in their irrepressible excitement... Simionato and Bastianini sing with exquisite perfection...

This was the great moment in 1957 when a glorious La Scala rediscovered Un ballo in maschera in all its joyous beauty.
