It's 25 Years Ago Today Since Maria Callas Died.
There's a badly designed but well-intentioned and informative Italian website to commemorate the anniversary and there's the film Callas Forever
, directed by one of her best friends (and the director of many of her most memorable operas, Franco Zefirelli
. It premiered today
. Mozart's Requiem
was also played at the concert held in her honour tonight in Athens
. I can't help thinking, though, that the Web is sorely lacking in resources about one of the greatest, most goosebump-provoking singers who ever lived. In fact, classical singers and classical music in general seem very (increasingly
) badly served. Even the glorious Andante
magazine, which I recently linked to
, looks like it's disappeared...
