WordStage Presents: “Callas on Callas”

April 6, 2024 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Wright Chapel

On Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m., WordStage celebrates the 100th anniversary of the life and art of the modern era’s most influential operatic artist, the Greek-American soprano, Maria Callas. The program, featuring WordStage Company member Leslie Stager, is based on a transcription of Callas’s famous Master Classes held at the Juilliard School in NYC in 1971.

Callas recounts her early years as a student, her initial operatic roles in Greece and Italy, her mentors and colleagues, and the musicianship, theatricality and craft she employed to transform the art of opera from simply a beautiful singing exhibition to, under her influence and example, the vital musical and dramatic theater it became. Rare videos of Callas in performance will enhance the program and reveal the interpretative genius of this extraordinary artist.
