Tebaldi vs Callas (2020)
Directed by Andreas Morell
‘Tigress’ and ‘Voice of the Angel’ – this is what their admirers used to say about Maria Callas and Renata Tebaldi. The two most outstanding opera divas of the 20th century competed fiercely for the recognition of the audience. A German documentary tries to answer the question: why the posthumous fame of these singers, revered during their lives equally, differed so much from each other. Callas went down in history as the Primadonna of the Century. Tebaldi lives in the memory of only connoisseurs of operatic voices. The result of the director’s investigation is an absorbing penetration of the fascinating world of opera.
