This video tracks the evolution of recorded song from the silent films of Caruso to the early Vitaphone footage with Martinelli and De Luca, culminating with Maria Callas' triumphant performance as Tosca at Covent Garden in 1964. With rare footage, including a never-before-seen film of Kirsten Flagstad singing "Hojotoho" from Die Walkure and Rosa Ponselle's screen tests for Carmen. Narrated by Penny Gore with insightful commentary by such opera notables as Schuyler Chapin, Magda Olivero, Kirk Browning and Nicola Rescigno. "One of the most involving, enlightening and entertaining productions to hit the market since classical labels began producing videos" (New York Times). 117 mins.
