"La Scala di Seta" (Die seidene Leiter) ist eine von Rossinis weniger bekannteren Opern. Sie wird sehr selten von Ensemblen gespielt und wird dann auch noch beliebig verändert. Hier kann man die Liebesangelegenheiten der schönen Giulia und ihren Liebhabern in voller und unveränderter Form erleben. Luciana Serra hat einen wunderschönen Koloratursopran den sie als weibliche Hauptrolle perfekt einsetzt. Cecilia Bartoli als trottelige Cousine Lucilla ist hier noch am Anfang ihrer Karriere. Was auch an ihrer Stimme zu hören ist. Im großen Ganzen ist dies eine klasse Aufnahme. Leider kann ich ihr den 5. Stern nicht verleihen, weil es doch einen großen Punkt zu bemängeln gibt. Es handelt sich nämlich um eine Live-Aufnahme, die nicht gerade in bester Qualität gemacht wurde. Manchmal stören die Bühnengeräusche nämlich ziemlich heftig und die Stimmen wirken manchmal sehr fern…

Esaminare se stesso un giorno dopo l'altro, studiare le proprie reazioni, i sintomi di una condizione fisica alterata, ma nel contempo controllare le mosse del prossimo, di chi sta intorno, di chi dice di amarlo mentre invece gli prepara, col veleno, una lenta morte… ecco il dramma del protagonista. L'insidia è chiara, la moglie intende sostituirlo con un altro uomo, cosí come aveva sostituito con destrezza e rapidità il primo coniuge. Ma se la verità è oramai palese, chi sarà mai il successore designato? E, una volta individuato, come affrontarlo? L'ironia a volte bonaria a volte quasi crudele di Simenon, la sua maestria nell'inquadrare con pochi tocchi una situazione psicologica complessa trovano in questo romanzo l'espressione piú compiuta e persuasiva.

Rossini's sparkling La scala di seta of 1812 weaves a burlesque tale of gentlemen climbing in and out of a lady's bedchamber on a silken ladder. Damiano Michieletto's modern-day production from the Rossini Festival in Pesaro sets the action in the two room apartment of the heroine Giulia, sung with 'wonderful suppleness' (Opernwelt) by Olga Peretyatko. The production also features a spectacular grand aria for Blansac (Carlo Lepore) extraneous to the work. Leading a young and spirited cast of Rossini specialists is maestro Claudio Scimone, a key figure in the international Rossini Renaissance.

The Sicilian-born tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano emerged in Switzerland after fleeing there when the Nazis took over Italy. There he made his first recordings after appearing on local radio in opera broadcasts. He made his operatic debut as Des Grieux in Massenet’s Manon at Regio Emilia on 20 April 1946 after which his rise was rapid. He débuted at La Scala in the same role in March 1947 and as the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto at the Metropolitan Opera the following year with Leonard Warren in the title role. These were Di Stefano’s golden years, singing roles such as Fenton in Verdi’s Falstaff, Almaviva in Il Barbiere de Siviglia, Nemorino in L’Elisir d’amore and Alfredo in La Traviata. His early 78rpm recordings from this period reveal a voice of great lyric beauty (CD 1 trs1-5) and when the repertoire was right and when he resisted putting pressure on his open-throated forward tone. His outgoing and exuberant, if insouciant, personality did not take restriction to heart. If he could sing a note or a phrase full out he did so and even on these early tracks in the revealing sound of CD one can detect a touch of dryness, even rawness, at the top of the voice although without detracting from the attraction of his pianissimo and mezza voce singing.

Callas first sang at Milan's legendary La Scala for the opening of the 1951-1952 season (in Verdi's I vespri siciliani) and she became closely identified with the theatre, notably in productions directed by Luchino Visconti and his protégé Franco Zeffirelli. Spontini's La vestale was staged for her there in 1954, Bellini's Lasonnambula in 1955, and her final La Scala performances came in 1962 with Cherubini's Medea. 'This wonderful record gives us… Callas at her most spell-binding and enthralling,' wrote Gramophone. 'Callas at La Scala… shows the diva at her most exciting and most beautiful'.

È la vigilia di Natale. Santo si risveglia in uno dei bagni della Scala di Milano dopo essersi fulminato con l'interruttore difettoso. Santo è un manager di successo, direttore della filiale milanese di una multinazionale della pubblicità e ha costruito la sua fortuna su un mix di spregiudicatezza personale e abilità politica. Ma Santo non si ricorda più niente di tutto questo. La scarica elettrica gli ha bruciato gli ultimi dodici anni di vita e i suoi ricordi risalgono a quando era ancora un ventenne impegnato nel sociale, che viveva in una casa occupata cercando di sbarcare il lunario come giornalista free lance.

With two official EMI versions and five complete live recordings, Norma is at the top of the Callas hit parade, but choosing a single version is a nightmare as each has its virtues, based on the state of the soprano's voice or the surrounding cast. My first choice lies with the first 1954 studio recording where the balance between vocal health and emotive quality is as good as one can get for this artist.
This was Maria Callas' first studio-recorded Norma, and it remains a formidable performance. If it doesn't quite have the emotional shadings of her 1960 EMI re-make, it is certainly vocally more secure and in its way just as authoritative. The grandeur of the voice itself is always in evidence; her seeming spontaneity to dramatic situations makes the drama real. Mario Filippeschi's Pollione is impressive–he was a finer tenor than he's given credit for–and Ebe Stignani's Adalgisa is warm and blends superbly with Callas in the duets. Nicola Rossi-Lemeni's Oroveso is a mass of wobbles. Tullio Serafin leads masterfully but observes all the cuts that were standard for the '50s. Most people prefer the 1960 performance, with its clearer delineation between Norma-the-warrior and Norma-the-woman (and for Corelli and Ludwig in the two supporting roles, not to mention the stereo sound), but by 1960 Callas' vocal problems were pretty overt, so you'll have to take the good with the bad. My preference is for the 1955 recording (on Opera d'Oro) with del Monaco under Serafin; its minute-by-minute potency and glorious singing are unmatchable.
