sempre viva

marria callas

When Maria was leaving Christina to sing at Covent Garden in London, where people had slept outside for five nights to get tickets, as she was leaving the Christina in the Mediterranean to fly back to London, he said to her:  why do you bother to sing? I’ve got plenty of money.. (Robert Sutherland’s interview here)


Thank God, her love for art was greater than her  love for the greedy little man, so today we can still enjoy her breathtaking performance in Tosca, directed by Franco Zeffirelli, at Covent Garden, London 1964.

R.I.P.
