According to her extraordinarily long list of stage roles, Maria Callas appeared over 600 times in 41 different operas and two operettas between April 2, 1939, and July 5, 1975. An astonishing number of these performances have been captured on fascinating recordings. This compilation release features six of the finest recordings in chronological order, selected by Dieter Fuoß primarily on the basis of artistic worth and secondarily on the basis of sound quality. Greek-American soprano Maria Callas was one of the most influential opera singers of the twentieth century. Critics worldwide praised her bel canto technique, wide range, and dramatic interpretations. Her skill, musicality, and dramatic talents led her to being hailed as La Divina.
