A voice of more even quality could not have imparted the tension, or Amelia’s desperation so effectively. Had she sought less wide a range, fewer colours then perhaps she might have achieved a more homogeneous sound, but she preferred richness of colour and play of lightness and shade in recreating the character.’ Throughout the rôle Callas chooses an appropriate plangent vocal colour to characterize
