Ponchielli: La Gioconda, Op. 9

🥀 The heartbreaking story of Gioconda holds a special place in the career of Maria Callas, as it was with this role that she made her Italian debut. She recorded her second studio version of this Ponchielli opera in 1959, with conductor Antonino Votto and, notably, a young Fiorenza Cossotto in one of her first major roles.
