Maria Callas: Tosca

As discussed in class, Maria Callas (1923-1977) was one of the best known opera stars of the post-World War II era.  She made her professional debut on July 4, 1941 at the Athens Opera singing the role of Tosca.  For more information on Callas and her career, check out the official Maria Callas website.

Here you can watch a video clip of Callas and Tito Gobbi singing the opening of Tosca’s second act at the Royal Opera Covent Garden.   If you’re inspired, go ahead and comment about this video, Callas, or the performance of Tosca we saw at the Met!
