Notes & Reviews:

The dying Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata was another of Callas's great roles, and again she is partnered with Di Stefano in this live performance from June 3, 1952. Callas brings tragic depth to a role that in other hands can seem shallow and unconvincing. This is a superb record of acting with the voice.
