When the "Lord of the Scala", Ghiringelli, heard Callas as Elena in "I vespri siciliani" he offered her the prima of the season at La Scala, as ELENA. Not a certain "success" like Traviata or Rigoletto this opera must be cast perfectly to succeed. The part of Elena requires a true assoluta, since she has not only most dramatic spinto-parts to sing but a much oranmented "Bolero", the aria we all know. This is a live-recording made in Callas' prime. Sadly it's not the ultimate Vespri because Kokolios isn't the best Arrigo, but it is a must hear for every operalover. Mascherini, who would be Callas' Macbeth only a year later, sounds VERY well. Kleiber conducts BRILLIANTLY. An awesome live-recording. Five stars and more!

Here is a modern live performance from La Scala led by Muti. The cast headed by Studer and Merrit is quite fine. All is crafted with care and Verdi's score is given the passionate reading it is due. The sound while clear is distant and shallow: quite odd and a little disappointing from a modern recording.
