    Maria Callas was perhaps the greatest opera singer of the 20th century.She sang in public for the last time in 1974 Her piano accompanist during her final recitals was Robert Sutherland With this book, he gives us a faithful record of the public and behind the scene activities during that tour through Europe, Canada, the United States, Korea and Japan.Joining Callas on the tour was veteran tenor Giuseppe di Stefano At the time, di Stefano was both a lover and a supporter to Callas With her often poor health and reduced vocal means, Callas believed she could not carry the weight of a concert entirely on her own Therefore, her old singing colleague from the 1950s was the answer and audiences appreciated this reunion of two of the greatest singing voices of the mid 20th century.To say the least, both Callas and di Stefano were temperamental and there was much sparring between the two of them in the course of the world tour.This book is wholeheartedly recommended for its in depth look at the Callas personality at work over a period of many months There is a stark contrast between the genius of Callas as an interpreter of opera and her often extremely mundane private life Often her favorite pastimes were reading horoscopes, gossipy magazines and watching cartoons, westerns or comedies on TV.Sutherland was often the moderator who helped keep the fiery singers together the Diva and the Divo He worked diligently with Callas to strengthen her vocal production Most tantalizingly, he coached her with the objective of a possible recording of a song recital Alas, this was not to be As music critic John Ardoin has said what wonders she might have achieved in the song repertoire.Sutherland provided much of the additional emotional support that Callas needed to keep going He recognized her artistic needs and was there to support her in this area, especially in contrast to Callas s often destructive failed romantic relationship with Greek magnate Aristotle Onassis a man who appeared to have had little regard for Callas s needs as an artist.It is great to have this faithful French translation of a book that first appeared in English in 1999.This new French edition includes an introduction by Tom Volf, the young French director who has produced the wonderful book and complementary film documentary on Callas, both called Maria by Callas The movie has just premiered here in Vancouver where Callas sang in May 1974 to a sold out audience It is making the runs of other international film festivals throughout Canada and the United States.My one criticism of this edition is that there are fewer photos in the French compared to the English.Warner Japan has also recently re released on Blu ray video the televised concert of October 19, 1974 that Sutherland, Callas and di Stefano gave in Tokyo.Unlike some, I do not dismiss Callas s final concert tour Her talents often shone through her physical and vocal frailties For me, the Tokyo video still shows Callas s command of the stage, her flawless dramatic instincts and her exquisite facial expressions and way of moving her hands.Thanks to the author of this book for helping Callas achieve the best she could at the time and for leaving us this significant record of her personality.
