Callas had already triumphed at La Scala with Anna Bolena and Il pirata (the first real success of Bellini's early career) in 1958. She wanted to record both works complete, but the producer Walter Legge was not convinced that either was marketable and persuaded the soprano to settle for their final scenes - which he believed to contain the essence of both pieces. Callas followed his judgement. 'We are the only two people who know what bel canto is,' she was to tell Legge years later when attempting to persuade him to share the platform at her Juilliard masterclasses. Posthumously she was to get her wish when EMI took into its catalogue a live broadcast of each opera from La Scala.
