Review from Thor

Fantastic show !
great performances by all the actors.
i especially liked the "students" and the piano player.

Description

Internationally renowned soprano Maria Callas had a legendary voice and an equally legendary life as one of the world’s most celebrated (and gossiped-about) opera stars. In 1971, Callas taught a series of master classes at Juilliard. Outspoken in her artistic beliefs and uncompromising in the musical understanding she sought to communicate to 25 fortunate students, Callas worked through her legendary arias from Mozart, Verdi, Rossini, Puccini and others. Terrence McNally’s play finds Callas near the end of her career, her voice almost gone, as she instructs a group of young singers aspiring to the heights of fame and fortune with wicked humor, unrelenting criticism and deeply personal stories.
