Program notes

When a Tito Gobbi, a prodigious actor and colossal singer, meets a Maria Callas…

Capable of portraying the debonair Falstaff in the opera of the same name by Verdi as well as the cruel Scarpia (Tosca by Puccini), Tito Gobbi is fortunately unable to disguise a voice that made him the most famous baritone of the sixties. We are able to judge for ourselves with this portrait the BBC made of him in 1958.
