Notes & Reviews:

In the pantheon of operatic divas of the 20th century, the name of Maria Callas stands supreme even though it is now many years since the end of her spectacular, if surprisingly brief, career on the operatic stage. It is also somewhat surprising that so few of her performances were filmed. This makes all the more precious the material that Warner does have, including her contributions to two gala concerts recorded at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 1962 and 1964 and contained in the DVD part of this release.
