About this title


The fascination of Maria Callas, her personality and her voice, today, thirty years after her death, has assumed the dimension of cultic worship. Her vocal art, immortalized in countless live recordings and studio recordings, also overwhelmed the generation of those who could no longer be seen on the stage. And her life story full of glamour and tragedy, provocatively staged against the mental narrowness of the fifties, still moves the minds. The volume, which collects photographs of the legendary stage shows of the Callas, portraits, stand photos, press pictures and private photographs, is a critical cult book, which seeks in pictures and words the approach to a unique phenomenon of operatic and contemporary history. No artist biography in the conventional sense, but a study about an incomparable musical genius and its dealing with the artistic and non-artistic public. Involving the myth, the artist and the wife of Maria Callas, the pictures testify to their overwhelming visual presence and the immense representational energies that made Callas appearances on public and private stages always an event.
