Until Maria Callas achieved a triumph in the delicate coloratura role of Elvira (I Puritani), she had been making her name in dramatic roles under the tutelage of maestro, Tullio Serafin since 1949.

Among these was the epically scaled title role in Die Walküre, which she had been singing just days before this recording. Her success in Bellini's final opera, I Puritani, set her firmly on the path to bel canto supremacy.

Joining her as Arturo in this 1953 recording is one of her best-loved colleagues, the tenor, Giuseppe di Stefano.
