“Maria Callas: Magic and Myth” with Joy McIntyre

The brilliant soprano Maria Callas reached icon status in her own lifetime.  She had an indelible effect on the world of opera.  Flames that burn especially brightly, do not often burn long.  Maria Callas died at the age of 53.  We will explore the magic and myths that enveloped this incandescent artist.  

Our Mission
