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.
In 1969, the Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini cast Callas in her only non-operatic acting role, as the mythological character of Medea. The production was grueling and Callas reportedly fainted after a day of strenuous running back and forth on a mudflat in the sun.
