Toujours Paris 1958DVD
Maria Callas was the quintessential diva. The beautiful soprano's personal life was as tragic as she was temperamental, yet she was one of the most gifted singers in history. Filmed at the Palais Garnier in Paris in 1958, Callas performs the works of Verdi, Bellini, and Rossini, joined by Tito Gobbi in the second act of Rossini's "Tosca." Re-mastered at London's Abbey Road Studio, this collection includes selections from: Vincenzo Bellini, 1801-1835 " Norma (Atto I)"; Giuseppe Verdi, 1813-1901, "Il travatore (Atto IV);" Gioachino Rossini 1792-1868, "Il barbiere di Siviglia;" and Giacomo Puccini, 1858-1924, "Tosca (Atto II)."
