The original diva. The greatest dramatic soprano of her generation. After a sensational career that saw her become the undisputed star of the world’s greatest Opera Houses including, La Scala and The Metropolitan Opera in New York, Maria Callas accepts an invitation to conduct a series of master classes to a select group of young vocal students at the Juilliard School in New York.
In Terrence McNally’s extraordinary theatrical tribute, Callas takes centre-stage one more time, as she passes on to her students, and to us, the experiences and lessons of a lifetime. We witness her passion and commitment and realise the uniqueness of her great talent as she cajoles and lectures her students, delivering wisdom and insults in true diva style.
