Recorded: 10–12, 16–20, 23 & 24.VIII.1955, Teatro alla Scala, Milan.

One of the legendary moments in Callas’ career came in 1950 in Mexico City, when she interpolated a stupendous top E flat at the end of the Triumphal Scene in Act II of Aida. In this recording under Serafin she abided by the score, but still prompted Gramophone to speak of her ‘fascinating art and prodigious personality’, observing the way she was ‘rapt in imaginative intensity in the significance of the words’.
Nobody disputes that the voice of Maria Callas is one of the great instruments of our time, and here is the proof. EMI's remastered recording of this 1955 performance of Verdi's 'Aida' testifies to her genius as a performer and a star.
Callas and 'Aida' had enjoyed a five-year relationship leading up to this recording. Callas was praised for her dynamic portrayal of Aida's rapidly changing emotions, and criticized for the sustained lament required in 'O patria mia.' At any rate, Callas captured the imagination of opera-goers across the globe with her powerful voice, and drew them in with the strength of her personality.
Recorded in Milan at Teatro alla Scala with the house orchestra conducted by Tullio Serafin, these CDs recapture the warmth, vibrancy, and clarity of the original performance. Verdi's masterwork in the hands of a timeless artiste makes for enjoyable listening and fascinating discussion, both today and in future years.
