Callas and the voice

The voice, by being so ephemeral, transient, incorporeal, ethereal, presents for that very reason the body at its quintessential, the hidden bodily treasure beyond the visible envelope, the interior “real” body, unique and intimate, and at the same time it seems to present more than the mere body…

The voice is the flesh of the soul, its ineradicable materiality, by which the soul can never be rid of the body.
