Carlo Maria Giulini - 10 facts about the great conductor
Giulini conducted his first staged opera in 1950 in Bergamo. It was Verdi’s 'La traviata' and he returned the following year with Maria Callas and Renata Tebaldi alternating in the role of Violetta. He is pictured here in October 1959 talking to the Australian soprano Dame Joan Sutherland, during a recording session of Mozart's opera 'Don Giovanni'.
