The Covent Garden Opera – the evolution of greatness, Part Two

Maria Callas bursts onto the London scene - her performances as Norma in 1952 caused a sensation and were another important landmark in Covent Garden's evolution. As was the appointment of the young conductor Rafael Kubelik and his blazing debut in Otello, starring Ramon Vinay and Gre Brouwenstijn. With eyewitness testimony from Joan Sutherland, Edward Downes, Nicholas Payne, Lord Harewood and timpanist Harold Nash.
