Queen for all times
To have been at La Scala in this moment……LOOK at what is sitting there scoping each other out. I believe that this was an arranged meeting, one of two, this in public of Maria Callas with Toscanini in the hopes of having them collaborate on a Verdi’s Macbeth. SHE should have done this with him. So many stories came out of this meeting one will never really know what happened. I would love to have heard what these two would have done with that opera. Can you even imagine?
What an elegant time for opera. How gorgeous and beautiful. I must confess I loved her heavy too. Her face is impressive and her carriage is so striking…but she worked hard to transform and that she did. Brava, Maria Callas who I admire so very much for her apt, incisive and compelling understanding of music and the arts. personality and message being important in music. Her humility and dedication. God bless and keep you in His most radiant of places, your art, your voice and your heart are not forgotten and give heat to everyone who sings and adores the art form. Happy Birthday, amazing, wonderful Maria. What would you think about todays world of opera?
