Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique.

Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
