Maria Callas Biography
Maria Callas was born and educated in Manhattan, although she received her musical tuition in Greece before establishing a career in Italy. Maria’s professional debut was in Greece in 1942 before she made numerous appearances in various productions during the war. After the war she moved back to America but was advised to settle in Italy, which she did, making a number of appearances in 1946.
Maria’s main operatic career is considered to be between 1947 and 1965, before she effectively retired from the stage. Coming out of retirement in 1973, she made a series of recital appearances but died in 1977 of a sudden heart attack in Paris. Since her death, Maria’s reputation has blossomed to the extent that she is considered one of the most popular singers of her generation. Album sales in the thirty years plus since her death are amongst the highest for music in the opera and classical genre.
