"Tebaldi possessed one of the most beautiful Italian voices of this century; her mezza voce singing was a joy to hear. She relied more on her rich, impeccably produced tone and inborn sense of style than on her acting ability to convey character and feeling. She made many recordings, most notably as Aida, Desdemona, Mimì, Tosca, Maddalena, Wally and, perhaps best of all, as Leonora in a live recording of La forza del destino under Mitropoulos and on a video from Naples (1958)." Harold Rosenthal and Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online. Tebaldi became a member of the Metropolitan Opera in 1955 and remained with the company for nearly 20 years. Item #24008
