Notes and Editorial Reviews

Perhaps no name in all of opera history is more familiar than that of Maria Callas (1923–1977), who in the 1950s became the first real “superstar” in opera since Enrico Caruso a quarter century before. This stunning 14-disc box set features the star in her greatest roles, including the tempestuous Aida, Armida in one of Rossini’s rarest operas, and the 1956 recording of Il Barbiere Di Siviglia, simply one of the greatest live performances ever recorded!

VERDI: Aida, Il trovatore, and La traviata; DONIZETTI: Anna Bolena; ROSSINI: Armida and Il Barbiere Di Siviglia; CHERUBINI: Medea
