Synopsis

Album Description
"If I could own but a single Callas set it would be this one!" -- John Ardoin, author, The Callas Legacy "Callas brings a passion and intimacy to the role that no other soprano [in the last] century has equaled ... Karajan creates ideal support for Callas's blinding performance." -- Rough Guide To OperaOne of the greatest live complete opera recordings starring Maria Callas, and the best of her recordings of Lucia di Lammermoor. Live performance, Berlin, September 29, 1955. Selected as one of the best performances from the vast Opera d'Oro catalog and reissued with new packaging, performance notes from Callas biographer Robert Levine, the fabulous cover art of Rafal Oblinski, and complete libretto newly translated by Bill Parker.

SUPERB LIVE RECORDING!
B. BURNETT | South Africa | 11/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the notes for the brochure, Robert Levine states "Callas and Karajan presented on this evening in 1955 a work of living art" and this recording is the living proof. At times it is difficult to believe it is a live recording, and i cannot recommend it highly enough."
