Maria Callas was one of the outstanding soprano singers of the 20th century. Ninety years after her birth, this diva's extraordinary voice and acting – captured on albums, CDs and DVDs – continue to enchant people the world over.
Callas's Metropolitan Opera debut, opening the season with Bellini's Norma on 29 October 1956, was preceded by an unflattering cover story in Time magazine, which wrote about her temper, her supposed rivalry with soprano Renata Tebaldi and her difficult relationship with her mother. Callas is pictured here with German soprano Dame Elisabeth Schwarzkopf.
