CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Of primary importance is [Callas’] first appearance opposite Jon Vickers. This complete artist (a musician rather than a tenor) was one of the few ideal artistic matches Callas had during her career. He stood for the same aims and standards in singing as Callas….”

- John Ardoin, THE CALLAS LEGACY, p.145



“Jon Vickers was a singing actor of overwhelming impact, his performances driven by a unique fusion of sensitivity, intelligence, brute force, and stubborn individuality [noted for] his contradictions, his frailties, his eloquence, and his egocentricity. He also was a rather enigmatic figure who avoided conventional paths to operatic glory.”

- Martin Bernheimer
