Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell3406ocn011698388visu19500.59Menotti, Gian CarloThe MediumDramaFilm adaptationsPrésentation de l'opéra de Gian-Carlo Menotti dans sa distribution new-yorkaise originale mais tourné en Italie avec l'orchestre symphonique de Rome (RAI-Radio italiana).

As one critic explained, "The arias are vocal extravaganzas that would terrorize all but a few singers today." But as Pamira, the young Greek woman who loves the Turkish leader, Maometto (Justino Díaz), who conquers Corinth with tragic consequences, Sills herself was really the conquering hero. "Perfectly phrased abandon," was one description of her singing, and the audience simply went berserk. Shirley Verrett co-stars in the pants role of Neocle, the young Greek captain who has been promised Pamira in marriage23432ocn032932195rcrd19630.33Bizet, GeorgesCarmenCriticism, interpretation, etcMusical settingsDramaThis production was recorded in the Teatro di San Carlo di Napoli in 1960 and is sung in Italian.

This was recorded a bit late in her career and some wobble is apparent. But her characterization of the words--so important in Ravel's precise animal portraits in Histoires Naturelles --is peerless. Too bad that the Satie songs--in terms of quality--veer between serious endeavors and cabaret toss-offs. The disc is filled out by Crespin's performance of Beethoven's concert aria Ah! Perfido , which illustrates why she was a formidable Tosca in her day. --David Patrick Stearns2243ocn004793398rcrd19740.37Barber, SamuelAdagio for strings op. 11.
