Heres the Casta diva and cabaletta from the 1954 broadcast, a transfer I made from original reels:

Moreover, Callas's interpretation was the rage, and rightfully so.  Taken on its own merits,  Milanov has some marvelous pianissimo moments,  powerful duets with Thebom, and a great final act.  She of course, transposes "Casta diva" as she did 10 years earlier.  She does not linger on the high C's throughout, but the complete package is there.  I had wonder why Barbieri who had the sung the premier was not scheduled to sing the broadcast performance.  Siepi and Penno are fine. The performance deserves a hearing!  Just my opinion.
