On 2 December 2023, the world will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Maria Callas. To mark this occasion, Warner Classics, the custodian of Maria Callas’s discography, will release a comprehensive collection of her recordings on 22 September 2023.
Maria Callas is credited with changing the history of opera. Known to the world as “La Divina”, she continues to fascinate as a supreme artist, but also as a female idol and style icon. Her voice, with its extraordinary range, was as distinctive as her infallible sense for a phrase. A magnetic presence, she brought operatic heroines to vivid life, magically shaping and colouring her tone and making insightful interpretations of the libretto.
Comprising 131 CDs, 3 Blu-ray discs and 1 DVD, LA DIVINA, Maria Callas in all her roles, is the most comprehensive box of Callas recordings ever released, presenting La Divina in all 74 roles for which audio documents exist. It includes her complete studio recordings, an extensive collection of her best live recordings, the masterclasses she gave at the Juilliard School, videos, and a bonus CD of world premiere releases: alternate takes and working sessions from studio recordings of the 1960s.
Warner Classics will also release various digital recordings throughout the year in addition to LP releases including Norma, Carmen, and a compilation of her recordings featured in films.
