Ginger Dellenbaugh – Maria Callas's Lyric and Coloratura Arias (Bloomsbury 33⅓, book)

Bloomsbury’s 33 ⅓ book series is usually dedicated to the great and groundbreaking albums of pop history, which is why Ginger Dellenbaugh's book on Maria Callas stands out—although one could certainly ask whether »La Divina Assoluta« was not also a pop star who just became famous in a different métier, meanwhile also existing as a hologram modelled on 2Pac and Co. On the basis of various arias, Dellenbaugh moves along the borders of pop and opera in »Maria Callas's Lyric and Coloratura Arias« by focusing on the fetishisation of the female voice.
