Notes & Reviews:

Callas and Corelli are together again for another operatic rarity. Donizetti's Poliuto, a work which suffered obscurity not because of uninteresting music but because of the censor's pen - the story about martyrs in early Christian times was too controversial for those who thought staging religious stories was blasphemous. Poliuto actually contains some of Donizetti's most exciting music, especially the thrilling final duet between Calllas and Corelli.

Callas and Corelli are together again for another operatic rarity, which suffered obscurity due to the censor's pen. Live performance, December 7, 1960.
