Maria Callas sings two recitals in Paris In 1965 and 1958

About

Moving and sublime, Callas was the "voice of the century." We see her filmed during two recitals in Paris.

In her lifetime Maria Callas was a legend. Ever since her death on September 16th, 1977, she lives on in the memory of the public at large, far beyond the circle of opera fans. Callas was real on stage, like no other singer before her: "Compared to her, most singers were pleasant to listen to, but as if they were disconnected from reality, recalls Renata Scotto. Callas spoke to us in the present." One needn't say more than that!
