“One of the great operatic sopranos of the 1930s and ‘40s, Carosio ruled the stage of La Scala with her powerful yet light voice, her looks and her outstanding abilities as an actress….The cancellation through illness of a performance of I PURITANI at La Fenice in 1949 unwittingly gave a young soprano named Maria Callas an opportunity to consolidate her reputation in the bel canto repertoire.”

– James Jolly, Gramophone, April, 2005
