The Black Pearl - tribute to Maria Callas

Esplanade Recital Studio

The black pearl, the rarest pearl.

A touching tribute to Maria Callas, the most iconic opera diva of all. A myth, whose controversial existence has cast in the light of world wide fame as well as in the shadows of a complex and troublesome private life. The show is an imaginary journey, rendered through a series of flash backs which will lead the audience to some of the most significant moments of the artist’s life. The anonymous narrator will deliver an intimate portray of the woman, her artistic identity and the complexity of her relationship to her family, to her mother, to her lovers.
