Maria Callas sings "Casta Diva" (Bellini: Norma, Act 1)

3,4M visualizzazioni576

    The great Maria Callas performs an aria from her signature role, Bellini's druid priestess Norma, with the Orchestre de l'Opera National de Paris and Georges Sebastian. Recorded live at the Palais Garnier on the 19th of December 1958, this concert marked the soprano's debut at the Paris Opera, a major social event for Parisians and for which Callas donned her most elegant couture and a million dollars' worth of jewelry.

      I'm always amazed how she effortlessly belts out those high octaves ...then takes a sharp turn to her low register. All in few seconds. I first heard her in that great scene in the movie 'Philadelphia'. After that, she always lingers in my subconscious mind. I understand French..but not Italian.Still, I love her soothing voice. A great talent indeed. Thanks for the upload.

      Quando ero piccola dormivo con i miei nonni ,all'epoca non c'era la televisione la sera mio nonno alla radio ascoltava la musica lirica ed io con lui , tutto questo mi è rimasto nel ❤️ cuore , Quando sento Maria Callas. mi emoziono mi ricorda la mia infanzia

      OMG such high art. Only warm-blooded people of the South can sing with such emotional expressivity. Cold singers from the North are unable to sing so candidly and profoundly because they hold back, probably due to living under frigid climates.

      I could listen thousands of times .....The ever one voice and sound vibrational frequency , that my ears could ever listen massaging my brain to reach , with your rich colored like rainbows upon your head to reach , touch the God with your Goddess voice ,my dear beautiful soul Maria ,pure Goddess feeling performance ......God bless your soul , it is lighter now after all ......🌞

      The chorus started too early and she corrected the chorus with the simple wave of her hand. Divina!

      No mundo atual não existe ar, e tantos perecem por falta dele neste momento. Seu ar saiu dos pulmões e nos encanta,e força para continuar.

      Какой талантище, какая аристократическая внешность, чарующий голос. Много было дано Марии, кроме простого женского счастья, в жизни пришлось узнать о обожание публики и предательство. Вечная память о ней в наших сердцах, ее почитателей.

      1. Константин петлицын

        ...покорившая мир, владеющая таким "сокровищем", способная осчастливить многих мужчин, но...это также удивительно как её дар, и трагично.

      I visited the columbarium at Pere Lachaise cemetary in Paris and located her spot. People have scrawled notes on the little 'wall door' (like a post office box) into which the urn is placed & sealed.. Her ashes were scattered in the Aegean a long time ago.

    36. NWGluehwein

      Божественный голос. Потрясающий! Ничего лучше не слышала.

      I saw and heard Madame Callas in the 70s in the RFH. Never forgotten.

    39. Bert Schurman

      Many many years ago at Covent Garden I cued all night sleeping bags and all from 18h00 till the time the box office opened in the morning. Unforgettable experience. I would do it again if I could hear her life, I am 81 now!

      Madam Callas did not just have the gift of this angelic voice. She had beauty (which she never admitted). She spoke 4 languages fluently (French, Italian, greek, and english). Was articulate and extremely sharp and handled interviews gracefully. What a loss to this world that she have died at a young age with a broken heart.

      All seems a bit Milli Vanilli to me...

      Muy superior a la Caballe, sin duda. Lástima su matrimonio con Onassis, que sólo tenía dinero.

      Maria was condemned in the Opera world for her timing prose and several other problems but all I see is her heart and soul and depth of voice. I'm no expert but she was out of this is world.

      Никто не споёт и не спел лучше её Каста Диву. Мария - самая величайшая. Такой выдающийся голос - подарок бога для нас. Я счастлива, что могу слышать этот голос.

      1. Anna Lynda

        Наши девки (Архипова и Вишневская) , да и Образцова лучше поют Касту Диву. (не говорю, что Каллас плохо, но наши лучше).

      2. Капиталина Сёменова

      Sinceramente ,esta mujer tiene la voz más precisa, exacta y maravillosa de esta y quizá ya de todas las generaciones venideras y habidas de este nuestro ...lo más bello que pueda obtener uno como sonido ,como la mejor substancia para los oídos.....lastima que ya esto no agrade a una cierta mayoría por ello no se valore como tal .....grande callas y por tanto ,tanto nos otorgas
