Description

ROH Recommended Recording

Callas first performed Cherubini's Medea in 1953 and continued to perform the role throughout the 1950s and 1960s. This performance on 30 June 1959 at the Royal Opera House received rave reviews: ‘Callas builds her performance into one powerful line of increasing tension. It is the kind of performance which spoils one for anything less from the opera stage.’ (George Mayer, American Record Guide)
