About Centenary of the Birth of Maria Callas

Few artists have had such an influence on their art that their name alone carries their legend. The one that the great conductor Leonard Bernstein described as the "Bible of opera" imposed on stage an extraordinary voice, a unique phrasing and valued more than anyone else the importance of acting in her discipline. A golden voice and a plethora of works, La Callas was also an extraordinary personality, a diva in every sense of the word, whose love and intimate life was punctuated by scandals and adventures worthy of the tragic characters she embodied on stage.
