I think Callas is one of the most amazing women. There are quite a number of YouTube videos of her live performances, and lots of homage videos using stills and live recordings. Here is "Habanera" from Bizet's Carmen (oh those flashing eyes!)

Over ten minutes from Act II from Puccini's Tosca at Covent Garden in 1964, with Tito Gobbi.

Callas’s jewels in Japan - Swarovski jewellery on exhibit

“Maria Callas & Swarovski, Jewels on Stage”, the exhibition of stage jewellery worn by one of opera’s most famous divas, is travelling to Japan in 2007. Some 50 pieces of this unique collection will be shown at the Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi Department Store in Tokyo from May 1-13, 2007, before going to the prestigious Hakone Glass Forest Museum near Yokohama from May 19 to August 31, 2007.

The legendary soprano turned to Swarovski for performance jewellery throughout her career. The Milanese atelier Marangoni created the stage jewellery set with Swarovski crystals for Callas from 1947 until 1965. Ennio Marangoni and his son Antonio, in close collaboration with Callas herself, designed all of the pieces. These jewellery pieces will be displayed alongside archival photos and other Callas memorabilia.

The exhibition has already been seen by more than 4 million visitors in some of the world’s most important opera houses and museums in Monte Carlo, Florence, Prague, Buenos Aires and New York.

Sophia Copolla has a striking resemblance to Maria Callas.

"The Prima Donna" published 29 October 1956. Here is the link to the incredibly long, fascinating article.
