Callas and hallucinations

Am I hearing voices within the voice? But isn’t it the truth of the voice to be hallucinated? Isn’t the entire space of the voice an infinite one?
Roland Barthes, “The Grain of the Voice”

My voice is mere breath
that will die with the new day.
Adriana Lecouvreur
The Barthes quote is taken from a beautiful article by Michal Grover-Friedlander, “The Afterlife of Maria Callas’s Voice,” Musical Quarterly 88 (1). I commend it to you warmly.
