Coinciding with the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, the catalogue’s 2017 priority, Warner Classics re-releases two of Maria Callas’ legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014.

Callas first sang at Milan’s legendary La Scala for the opening of the 1951-52 season (in Verdi’s I vespri siciliani) and she became closely identified with the theatre, notably in productions directed by Luchino Visconti and his protégé Franco Zeffirelli. Spontini’s La vestale was staged for her there in 1954, Bellini’s La sonnambula in 1955, and her final La Scala performances came in 1962 with Cherubini’s Medea.

'Callas at her most spell-binding and enthralling,' wrote Gramophone, 'Callas at La Scala (…) shows the diva at her most exciting and most beautiful.'
