Notes & Reviews:
1954: La Vestale - La Vestale with Maria Callas is a document of extraordinary historical and musical value. On opening night, the 7th of December 1954, La Scala Theatre entrusted the directing of this neoclassical masterpiece to Luchino Visconti, his debut in lyric opera. The tireless master worked hard to create a production based on the charm and art of the divine Callas. This is an extremely interesting artistic journey, accompanied by truly fascinating images. Each La Scala edtion includes 2 audio CDs of the opera recorded at La Scala, and a hardback book which includes an introduction to the opera, full of tales of events and exclusive anecdotes, the original theatre program (including texts and notes written and published at the time of the performance), the complete libretto, and a photo album - a story told in pictures, the opera on stage and behind the scenes including photos, sketches and designs from the Theatre Archive.
