Where is the next great Medea, Lucia, Norma or Anna Bolena to be found?
L. E. Cantrell
On the callas set, Rossi-Lemeni as enrico is also great, but Raimondi as percy didn't leave much of an impression on me.
Amazon Customer
To me, and I'm sure many people agree with me, is a mark of a great artist.

The historical setting of the confllict between King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn provided Donizetti with his "Anna Bolena", and Maria Callas with one of her greatest roles. This is still another opera that Callas should have recorded in the studio, but since she didn't, we are lucky to have this live 1957 La Scala broadcast of the famous revival. The sound isn't great, but it's much better than many other performances of this genre. Callas is in as good vocal form as she could be expected to be in 1957, in other words, very good indeed. She plays the martyred and injured queen for all she's worth, and the effect is riveting. Callas was also fortunate in having at her side the great Italian mezzo Gulietta Simionato, who, as Jane Seymour, her rival for the affections of Henry, sings magnificently, matching Callas note for note in the great duet in Act II.Simionato also does some very wonderful singing on her own. Nicola Rossi-Lemeni is a menacing Henry and Gianni Raimondi is a lyrical Percy, Anna's great friend and confidante. Gavazzeni's conducting is taut and appropriate intense. It is fortunate that EMI issued this performance on its Callas Edition series. The performance, by the way, is somewhat cut down to essentials, which was in keeping with the performance standards of the time. Very strongly recommended.

Format: Audio CD
I'm always of the view that Callas reached her absolute peak as a dramatic singing actress with this legendary production of ANNA BOLENA at La Scala. In 1957, Callas's vocal decline was just around the corner but, judging from the evidence of this live recording, she was then still in remarkable vocal form. Indeed, her voice, her impressive dramatic gift and musicianship are heard here in almost perfect equilibrium and these combine to form an all-rounded and three-dimensional portrait of the heroine, a woman of flesh and blood caught in the midst of those internecine disputes which plagued the English Court, but who also possesses great nobility and a palpable sense of tragic grandeur even when her fate is sealed.
Indeed, every word that Callas sings tells and her inflection and tone colouring are not only apt, they are often insightful and illuminating. Her plaintive tone in the more poignant passages can make a stone weep and her unique accentuations of the texts can tug at one's heart. On the other hand, she never sacrifices the music for the sake of overt histrionics and her legato singing and the way she shapes and sculpts the long phrases are things to marvel at. She is in such fine vocal form that not only is she able to cap the ensemble at the end of Act I with a clarion top D, her performance of the very demanding final scene is a vocal tour de force that is imbued with a wide palette of emotions. All in all, it is sublime performance that is not only vocally awesome, but is also shattering in its emotional impact.
Callas has a worthy partner in Simionato's Giovanna (Jane Seymour), as the latter is in imposing vocal form throughout. Although Giovanna is not a well-developed character in the opera, Simionato succeeds in making the most out of it.

I never thought ANYONE could surpass my beloved Edita as Anna Bolena (I heard her live) but this just DID IT! I do prefer Gruberova in several roles but Callas OWNS Anna Bolena now. The best performance imaginable with a fantastic cast and a brilliant conductor! BRAVA!

Format: Audio CD
SOURCE:
Live performance from the opening night of the new Visconti production of "Anna Bolena" at La Scala in Milan, April 14,1957.

SOUND:
By current standards, the mono sound is boxy and limited. By the standards of Callas' recorded live performances, it is well above average. Voices are generally well-caught in a sort of AM radio-ish way, the orchestra slightly less so. The audience at La Scala that opening night was unusually quiet for an Italian crowd. Perhaps they were a little awed by the occasion. Certainly, they were unfamiliar with the opera. Their recorded responses are positive, generous and at more or less the appropriate spots. All that aside, anyone who listens to this "Anna Bolena" should do so for the performance, not the sound reproduction.

CAST:
ANNA BOLENA, Queen of England - Maria Callas (soprano)
ENRICO VIII, King of England - Nicola Rossi-Lemeni (bass-baritone)
GIOVANNA SEYMOUR, lady-in-waiting to Queen Anna, king's mistress and next Queen of England - Giulietta Simionato (mezzo-soprano)
PERCY, a nobleman dangerously in love with Anna - Gianni Raimondi (tenor)
SMETON, a young page and musician idiotically in love with Anna - Gabriella Carturan (soprano)
LORD ROCHEFORT, Anna's brother who has a talent for being in the wrong place at the wrong time - Plinio Clabassi (baritone)
LORD HERVEY, a courtier who is acutely aware that his career will not be advanced by being Anna's friend - Luigi Rumbo (baritone)

CONDUCTOR:
Gianandrea Gavazzeni with the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro alla Scala, Milano.

DOCUMENTATION:
Libretto with English translation. Short history of the opera and brief summary of the plot.
