"I have used the words “spellbinding and sublime art” about Callas’s interpretation of the role [of Amina]. It is very intricate, and fired by poetic intellect. I need hardly point out how strikingly she colours every phrase, note and word. After a couple of playings, almost every line of recitative sticks in the mind with the exact colour and expression that she gives to it..." - The Gramophone, 1957
Bellini's 1831 opera La sonnambula (The Sleepwalker) really comes to life here in this fabulous 1957 EMI recording starring Maria Callas alongside Fiorenza Cossotto, Nicola Zaccaria and Nicola Monti in a brilliant La Scala production that had delighted Milanese audiences for the previous two seasons. XR remastering and Ambient Stereo production adds fabulous new dimensions and presence to a classic of the Callas discography.
