About

The role of the betrayed and finally murderous Medea became closely associated with Maria Callas. In 1969, several years after her final operatic performance, she even starred as Jasonís spurned wife Ė as an actress, not as a singer Ė in a film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini.

She first appeared in Cherubiniís opera in 1953 in Florence, with Vittorio Gui conducting, and later that year collaborated with Leonard Bernstein in a staging at La Scala; in 1962. The role brought her final appearances at Milanís great opera house.
