Celebrating Callas : The Life and Music of Maria Callas
Bord Gais Energy Theatre | Friday 14 September 2018
Featuring Anna Patalong as Callas, Gavan Ring as Onassis, Alexander James Edwards as Meneghini
Legendary opera star Maria Callas died on 16th September 1977 at the age of just 53. Her life had all the passion and drama of the operatic roles that made her one of the biggest stars of the 20th Century. This acclaimed new show is a fascinating insight into her private world, focusing on her love affair with Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who ultimately left her for JFK’s widow, Jackie Kennedy.
Presented fully-staged with costumes and orchestra, stunning international opera singers give breathtaking performances of scenes from La Traviata, Madame Butterfly, Tosca, The Pearl Fishers, Carmen & many more.
A large overhead screen shows historical footage of Callas’s life, narrated by the unique voice of the great British actor Simon Callow CBE. (Four Weddings and a Funeral; A Room with a View; Amadeus.)
CALLAS is one of those rare shows that comes along just once in a generation. It captures the romance and glamour of a bygone era and brings the audience to its feet shouting “Encore!”
