Love Letters and More from La Divina Up for Auction

It's been 30 years since the passing of opera legend Maria Callas, the voice the world came to know as La Divina.

This week, a stash of the soprano's personal effects goes on auction in Milan, Italy. The musical scores, dresses and love letters offer a glimpse of the private passions of the opera diva whose voice enchanted millions.

The items are being released by the estate of Callas' late husband, Giovanni Battista Meneghini.
