Mono HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Mercury) Luigi Cherubini – Medea (Callas)

This is one of Callas’ most famous roles. Callas was born to play monumentally tragic, misunderstood characters such as the mythical Medea who was driven to such depths of despair by her husband’s betrayal that she killed their joint children just to punish him. I do not imply any naive emotional parallels to Callas’ own tragic and misunderstood life, but the strength of Callas’ characterization of Medea in this opera is certainly remarkable.
