Callas in Concert
Forty years ago, Maria Callas shrugged off the earthly binds of temporal life, leaving a bereft world longing for her presence, her performances, her voice. Now she returns to the stage, in all her grandeur, confirming her immortality to stunned audiences.
Introducing Callas in Concert, a triumphant event that brings the beloved La Divina to the stage via hologram, singing to the accompaniment of a full live orchestra. As this unprecedented performance unfolds, you will surrender all notions of what is real and get lost in the magic of perhaps the best opera singer of all time.
From the moment the curtain rises, you are a captive in Callas’s world. Her most iconic performances of Bellini, Bizet, Verdi, Puccini and more feature original recordings digitally remastered and brought to life on stage through breathtaking state-of-the-art digital and laser technology. Yet this is far from a replay of her past glories. You will delight as Ms. Callas playfully engages celebrated orchestra conductor, Eímear Noone*. And you will stare awe-stricken as she reacts to you, the live audience, and you feel her soul.
On this fantastical evening you will experience the legendary emotional force that is Maria Callas. From one moment to the next you will feel her passionate heat, cool detachment, heartrending vulnerability, fierce confidence, and breathtaking grace. You will bear witness as she inhabits her operatic characters, and evokes the drama that inspired her sobriquet, La Divina. This is a celebration not to be missed.
