Callas's first stage appearances in Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera came to La Scala in 1957, a year in which Milan also saw her in La Sonnambula and Anna Bolena.

As in this recording, made the year before, she shared Verdi's most spectacular soprano-tenor duet (in Act II) with Giuseppe di Stefano.

This was the last time Callas and Di Stefano appeared together in opera, though they reunited in the 1970s to direct I vespri siciliani in Turin and to give a series of joint concerts in Europe, the USA, Canada, South Korea and Japan.
