Giuseppe di Stefano
Chorus & Orchestra of La Scala Milan
Maria Callasís first stage appearances in Verdiís Un ballo in maschera came at La Scala in 1957, a year in which Milan also saw her in 'La sonnambula' and 'Anna Bolena'.
As in this recording, made the year before, she shared Verdiís most spectacular soprano-tenor duet (in Act II) with Giuseppe di Stefano. This was the last time Callas and Di Stefano appeared together in opera, though they reunited in the 1970s to direct 'I vespri siciliani' in Turin and to give a series of joint concerts in Europe, the USA, Canada, South Korea and Japan.
Gramophone judged this recording of Ballo to be Ďone of Callasís most compelling assumptionsí.
