Notes & Reviews:

Maria Callas is the ultimate and original diva. She is widely regarded as the greatest opera singer and performer of all time whose life, voice and performances have intrigued, thrilled and inspired all who have come after her. Widely regarded for her intense characterizations and unique interpretations, Callas has transcended opera to become a cultural icon whose influence touches all corners of the art world. While next year marks the 35 the anniversary of her death, Maria Callas remains immortal and forever in our lives. The Callas Effect deluxe edition contains a fascinating newly-commissioned documentary on Callas, exploring her life and legacy - particularly the myths and misconceptions - through illuminating interviews with close friends, contemporaries like Mirella Freni and current stars of the stage such as Joyce DiDonato, along with rare news features, interview footage and performance clips. The DVD comes bundled in a luxury hardcover package with a 60 page booklet, photos, a 2-CD collection of her best-loved aria recordings, and full access to an exciting new offfical Maria Callas website loaded with bonus content.

"Her reputation, extremely high when she died, has become ever greater in the years since her death. As a personality she remains controversial, but as an artist hardly at all: her genius is recognized as supreme by virtually all opera lovers, indeed it is often from listening to her many recordings that people discover what an incredibly potent art form opera can be." -BBC Music Magazine

International Record Review
Memorable artistry is evident everywhere - utterly exemplary in its musical intelligence, stirring in its interpretative eloquence. The technique dazzles in marvellously expressive trills... and everywhere, of course, the uniquely penetrating dramatic involvement.
