Vouleytiko - La Maria: The Life & Loves of Maria Callas, 28 June 2016
The drama, passion, love and art of opera diva Maria Callas is captured by Dr. Maria Boundas Bakalis in her performance of “La Maria, an original play interwoven with excerpts from Callas’ recordings and based on words and writings like the undermentioned: “I was born without a name. At the age of three I was christened Cecilia Sophia Anna Maria, daughter of Greek immigrants Giorgos and Evangelia Kalogeropoulos. Kalogeropoulos evolved into Callas, Maria Callas. And by the will of the gods, or by what we Greeks call teehee or moira, I became La Maria, Opera’s prima donna. Music’s Apollo was my God. Tragedy’s Melpomene my muse”.
