Though Maria Callas died in 1977, she still lives on as the epitome of the operatic diva. She has never lost her place among the top-selling classical artists. To mark this 40th anniversary, Warner Classics release this 180g LP album of live recordings. The collection benefits from the superb remastering and conveys thus Callas' compelling genius as a singing actress with a new truthfulness and immediacy: Maria Callas Live and Alive! The passion and charisma of Maria Callas, performing live on the stages of the world's greatest opera houses and concert halls, can now be experienced as never before - thanks to new audio remastering from the best available sources. These are performances that played a crucial part in creating the legend of Callas, La Divina, and which keep her thrilling art very much alive.
