50+ high or major notes from the 1950-1952 Mexico tours in chronological order. For visuals, the covers of the albums you can find these tracks on.
What can you say about this collection of performances? In my opinion, the audiences that were privvy to these treasures were the luckiest people to have ever lived!
Imagine being there in the Palacio de Bellas Artes, whether being in 1950, when Maria Callas may have been unknown to you, or in 1952, when you had been given a taste, but longed for more!
She sung many roles in mexico, giving some of the most vocally intense performances of her careeer. The single note that is more incredible and daring (in my opinion) the high E in the 1951 Aida. These are the wild years, where it's almost like she was learning the limits of her incredibly powerful and intriguing voice.
There are only a few absences - the 28 June, 1952 performance of Tosca, and the final note of Se Tradirmi Tu Potrai from the 10 June 1952 Lucia. I have ordered these albums but i couldn't wait the two month shipping time.
I Highly recommend you buy these albums from wherever you can, this is just the tip of the iceberg, her middle and lower registers, her agility and daring are just as amazing. If you get to pick where you go when you die, you'll find me here!

I didn't include the "June 14 1952" Lucia mad scene notes as i believe them to be fakes
