Can Belto

On the art of singing and those who practice it…

Casta Diva, Inmortal Diva

Today is Dec 4th and it is the day Maria Callas celebrated her birthday. So here at Can Belto I am celebrating.

I first heard Callas’ voice at the home of my voice teacher. Her husband played Divinite du Styx from Alceste and my first thought was THAT is Callas? Thank God I was not turnes off enough to come to love her. After the initial reaction I have endured a 20 year love affair with her voice and her artistry. I love many singers, but Callas is special to me for many reasons.

So I’ll spare you the details and the mushy reminiscences and the details repeated ad nausea. I’ll only say this:

Brava, Brava Maria Callas!

Thank you Maria for your art, your gift…
