Maria Callas - La Traviata Maria Callas (1923-1977) Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) La traviata E strano! E strano!...Ah, fors'è lui che l'anima...Follie! Follie!...Sempre libera Orchestra sinfonica di Torino della RAI Conducted by Gabriele Santini 1953 VIOLETTA (sola) È strano! È strano! In core scolpiti ho quegli accenti! Saria per me sventura un serio amore? Che risolvi, o turbata anima mia? Null'uomo ancora t'accendeva -- O gioia ch'io non conobbi, esser amata amando! E sdegnarla poss'io per l'aride follie del viver mio? Ah, fors'è lui che l'anima solinga ne' tumulti godea sovente pingere de' suoi colori occulti! Lui che modesto e vigile all'egre soglie ascese, e nuova febbre accese, destandomi all'amor. A quell'amor ch'è palpito dell'universo intero, misterioso, altero, croce e delizia al cor! Follie! follie! Delirio vano è questo! Povera donna, sola, abbandonata in questo popoloso deserto che appellano Parigi. Che spero or più? Che far degg'io? Gioire, di voluttà ne' vortici perir. Gioir, gioir! Sempre libera degg'io folleggiare di gioia in gioia, vo' che scorra il viver mio pei sentieri del piacer. Nasca il giorno, o il giorno muoia, sempre lieta ne' ritrovi, a diletti sempre nuovi dee volare il mio pensier. ALFREDO (sotto al balcone) Amore, amor è palpito... VIOLETTA Oh!

Madame Butterfly - Maria Callas
Madame Butterfly - Maria Callas Puccini's Opera ''madame butterfly'' by Maria Callas Maria Callas (Greek: Μαρία Κάλλας) (December 2, 1923 September 16, 1977) was an American-born Greek soprano and one of the most renowned opera singers of the twentieth century. She combined an impressive bel canto technique with great dramatic gifts. An extremely versatile singer, her repertoire ranged from classical opera seria to the bel canto operas of Donizetti, Bellini, and Rossini; further, to the works of Verdi and Puccini; and, in her early career, the music dramas of Wagner. Her remarkable musical and dramatic talents led to her being hailed as La Divina. Born in New York City and raised by an overbearing mother, she received her musical education in Greece and established her career in Italy. Forced to deal with the exigencies of wartime poverty and with myopia that left her nearly blind on stage, she endured struggles and scandal over the course of her career. She turned herself from a heavy woman into a svelte and glamorous one after a mid-career weight loss, which might have contributed to her vocal decline and the premature end of her career.

Her dramatic life and personal tragedy have often overshadowed Callas the artist in the popular press. Her artistic achievements, however, were such that Leonard Bernstein called her "The Bible of opera", and ...
