Printing Details

Assumed first edition. Paperback. 20.5 × 14cm, 99pp. Greek text.

A rare booklet by Marika Palaisti, the Greek soprano who sang with the Bolshoi Opera. The book appears to be a sideways swipe at Maria Callas as it suggests her fame through the numerous scandals in her private life and not through the strength of her voice. Palaisti claims to be an expert in the voice, and also suggests Maria Callas' voice is lyric coloratura and as such, she must never sing Aida, Norma, or Medea or she will ruin her voice, comparing Callas unfavourably to other singers such as Elizabeth Schwartzkopf, Joan Sutherland etc. At the same time, Palaisti quotes articles from American papers that state what a great singer she herself was...
