TPDVD103 - Callas 30th Anniversary Edition. There are so many astonishing facts about Maria Callas... although she died 30 years ago, her records today outsell every other recorded classical artist, and single handedly keep EMI Classics afloat. Last, hers was not the most beautiful voice of her time, as she frequently admitted. Some days it worked; other days it just didn't. Maria - just a woman, who often spoke of Callas in the third person, And she was only 53 when she died.
