SICILIAN tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano was the most brilliant and sought-after lyric tenor of the 1950s and will long be remembered for the many roles he sang opposite Maria Callas in the opera house as well as the recording studio. Audiences responded immediately to his seductive, openly produced voice, to his natural ebullience and his charismatic stage personality.
