In ‘Ave Maria,’ the gift of Callas for world leaders December 26, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Music Life Classical, Special Features.

A set of recordings by Maria Callas is the gift that Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis will be presenting to foreign leaders this New Year, a gift that will stand the test of time.

The set consists of 20 CDs and DVDs on which the late diva is heard singing the operas that made her famous as the “greatest voice in opera.” Another reason for Karamanlis’s choice is the 30th anniversary of Callas’s death. She died alone in her Paris apartment.

Maria Callas filled theaters around the world, including Epidaurus and Herod Atticus, with her voice and made Greece famous in opera houses in many capital cities.
