Maria Callas

Given that I'm about to head off to the UK tomorrow on a stay that includes 4 nights in a Scottish castle I thought, what more fitting way to pay tribute to Maria Callas on her birthday than Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor?

You might have already guessed that La Divina has played a big part in my operatic journey. Right from when I first purchased an LP of highlights from Madama Butterfly from a thrift shop for $1.00 when I was about 14. After reading countless biographies through my teens I styled my dedication to my Art on Callas, which continues to this day.

La Divina, you have always been, and always will be, an inspiration to many.
