Maria Callas (1923-1977) sang on the stage of La Scala for thirteen years. She debuted in 1950 with Verdi's "Aida" and her farewell came in 1962 with Cherubini's "Medea". In that brief, dazzling time, the Greek singer forever changed the image of the diva and her rapport with the public. No longer a credible nightingale, the artist became an actress, a refined narrator, choralist, and her own director. Callas' stage movements, her sculpted poses, her infinite range of facial and gestural expressions were the cornerstones of legendary performances, above all "La Triviata" directed by Luchino Visconti in 1955. Now, thirty years after her death, the "Teatro alla Scala" celebrates this most loved and talked about diva, a peerless artist who became an icon of modernity.
