“The ghost of Maria Callas” is a lovely piece composed by Matt Elliott. You can hear it, and read remarks by Mr. Elliott, in the blog archives.
Mr. Elliott knows more about Maria Callas than many people who write about her. Today’s gem comes from the Giornale di Brescia. The designer Roberto Capucci has created a new dress in honor of the famous “Winged Victory” statue in Brescia and is exhibiting it along with older creations, including
the sculpture-gown “Vestale,” Capucci’s personal homage to Maria Callas, which the celebrated opera singer wore in 1986 at the Arena di Verona.
Nine years after her death! Maria Callas never ceases to amaze.
As I write, Capucci’s own website is not fully launched. It may offer more plausible information in time.
