Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Live performance, Berlin, September 29, 1955. One of the greatest live complete opera recordings starring Maria Callas, and the best of her recordings of Lucia di Lammermoor. Selected as one of the best performances from the vast Opera d'Oro catalog and reissued with new packaging, performance notes from Callas biographer Robert Levine, the fabulous cover art of Rafal Olbinski, and complete libretto newly translated by Bill Parker. "Callas brings a passion and intimacy to the role that no other soprano [in the last] century has equaled Karajan creates ideal support for Callas's blinding performance." - Rough Guide To Opera
