“Maragliano’s 1959 début at the Arena di Verona in LA FORZA DEL DESTINO, at the age of 28, was as a replacement for the indisposed Antonietta Stella. Her success ensured her presence there until the early ‘70s. The wide vocal range, the solid technique and great dramatic temperament soon made Luisa Maragliano a great favorite who sang in all the major theaters of the world (La Scala, San Carlo, Rome Opera, the Metropolitan (with the Rome Opera), Chicago, Vienna Staatsoper, etc.). In a broad repertory that ranged from Handel’s GIULIO CESARE to Zandonai’s FRANCESCA DA RIMINI, her rôles included ATTILA , AÏDA (over 500 times),IL TROVATORE , NABUCCO , ANDREA CHÉNIER and TURANDOT (Liù). Almost inexplicable is that such a talent of this vocal type has been ignored by the recording industry.”

"Vocal size and rugged style mark [Corelli] as an open-air tenor….The vibrancy of his timbre is unequaled among tenors, and often it holds a commendable warmth as well…."
- Paul Jackson, SIGN-OFF FOR THE OLD MET, p.374
