5.0 out of 5 stars As the colours which always are here. 16 April 2000
By A Customer
Portraits of a woman of exquisite beauty, whom was a fashion icon, a performer of immeasurable talent, a lover, a smile and a glance which act as does the sunlight upon the oceans and the skies, the embodiment of all that is meaningful and all that can ever be. A book of photographs you might well say? This book is a veritable Garden of the Hesperus. It really is so. Thence, it is a reminder that the form which is beauty's essence can never die. By the way, there is more akin to the 'truth of things' in the book's Introductions, (Tito Gobbi's statement about immortality), than in any other text I have read, save for those of Shelley, Byron and Keats. Yes, on opening this book, many miracles perform for the reader and will do so again and again and again... in memories of its pages and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Maria Callas! 8 Mar 2009
By ravennamoon - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a treasure trove of beautiful pictures of the
fascinating and legendary Maria Callas! It captures all her
beauty, mystery and passion from her early years through her
mature life. Other than a few video recordings, we do not have
the gift of seeing Callas perform on stage, but these pictures
capture some of the great roles she performed---with all her
gestures, expressions and complete immersion into her roles as
Tosca, Violetta, Norma and Medea, and so many others.
This is a must-have book for devoted Callas fans. Put on your favorite
Callas cd, pour yourself a glass of wine, and peruse the book slowly.
Relive a beautiful dream!

This is a stunning, large, glossy-paged coffee table book with so many great photos from La Divina's stage & personal life. I absolutely LOVE this book & keep it in my living room right on the table to show it off to friends. An absolute must-have for any opera lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calla lovers, buy this book 6 Oct 2012
By Stanley Hauer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A must-have for the opera nut. The photos are stunning. It's a fairly complete run-through of her career. The opening prose sections are okay but not the heart of the book. The photos are. I promise: this one will be on your coffee table for years.
