Maria by Callas (2017)

  • Documentary
  • 1h 54m

Tom Volf’s Maria By Callas is an intimate look at the life story of the legendary Greek-American opera singer completely in her own words.

Callas believed that two different women lived in her: Maria, the woman who longed for a normal life; and Callas, the public figure and icon, from which an adoring public expected a transcendent experience every time she stepped onstage, and which could quickly become outraged when they felt she had given them anything less.

Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs – nearly all of which have never been shown to the public – the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New York City to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time.
