in Royal Festival Hall - the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

My husband and I attended a concert at the Festival Hall that remains unforgettable, Callas and a partner sang a wonderful selection of Italian and other songs.  Callas looked elegant and posed as the great diva she was, and held the rapt audience throughout that charmed afternoon.
