About

According to the list of stage roles, Maria Callas appeared over 600 times in 41 different operas and two operettas between 2 April 1939 and 5 July 1975. An astonishing number of these performances have been captured on fascinating recordings. This CD box set features six of the finest recordings in chronological order, selected by Dieter Fuoss primarily on the basis of artistic worth and secondarily on the basis of sound quality. At the same time, there was to be no duplication of the live recordings released by Callas’s regular label EMI (now Warner).

CD 1 & 2: Giacomo Puccini - Tosca (rec. 1952, live)
CD 3, 4 & 5: Vincenzo Bellini - Norma (rec. 1955, live)
CD 6 & 7: Gaetano Donizetti - Lucia di Lammermoor (rec. 1956, live)
CD 8 & 9: Giuseppe Verdi - La traviata (rec. 1958, live)
