Callas and the paparazzi

The clip shows Maria Callas in late 1959, after she had separated from her husband, on her way to give a concert in Kansas City. Time reported on the concert in its November 9, 1959 edition.

Along with the clip, I offer you Callas’s 1953 test recording of “Non mi dir” from Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which she sang in Kansas City, and modern commentary on fame and its consequences.
