1971. New York. You are invited to a master class with the great soprano, Marie Callas. In five years time her death will transport her to legendary status, worshipped as the greatest diva of them all. Now she is witty, bitchy and flamboyant, demanding and insecure. She recalls the soaring highlights of her own career and her disastrous private life. She takes you back to her childhood in Nazi-occupied Greece, relives scenes with envious colleagues, insulting dressers, her elderly husband and her treatment in the hands of Onassis, one of the richest men in the world and her lover. She will transport you to the scene of her greatest triumph at Milan's La Scala opera house and thrill you with the magic of her voice. Master Class
