There is a superb live performance of Lucia di Lammermoor with Callas, and conducted by Karajan, from 1955:
And there is also a studio recording of Il Trovatore with Callas and Karajan on EMI (many different reissues) that is wonderful.
absolutely fantastic performance and the recording is first rate. The opening scene of Act IV is just heart-stopping. Callas at her best.
And here's Act IV of the Callas/Karajan recording of Trovatore:
one should not judge the audio quality from that youtube link. It's a very poor representation of what the original sounds like. Among other things, Callas' voice is nowhere near that shrill in the upper register on the original. If I get a minute, I'll put up a dub from my Columbia.
