Maria Callas was truly great, she took the Met stage in the 50-60s by storm, and deserved was recognized. I am glad that I experience her in my lifetime.
Listen to the entirety of both those tracks, no just a snippet.
In my opinion, and you form your own, both are correct.
not 100% sure, but i feel like both maybe correct?
