Stunning Tribute of Maria Callas is coming to Dublin this September!
We are delighted to announce that CALLAS - The Life & Music of Maria Callas is coming to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Friday 14 September 2018. Tickets go on sale this Friday through Ticketmaster.
“CALLAS” is the world’s first stage show about the legendary opera star Maria Callas. The show explores her famous love affair with Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who left Callas in 1968 to marry President JFK’s widow, Jackie Kennedy. Drawing remarkable parallels between her personal life and the roles she played on stage, “CALLAS” is a fascinating insight into one the most enigmatic and iconic performers of the 20th Century.
Maria Callas is played by the stunning British soprano Anna Patalong. [“Anna Patalong sounds utterly gorgeous" - The Guardian.] She is joined by the brilliant Irish baritone Gavan Ring in the role of Onassis and much-loved UK tenor Alexander James Edwards as Meneghini. The show is narrated by the voice of acclaimed British actor Simon Callow CBE (‘Four Weddings & A Funeral’; ‘A Room With A View’; ‘Amadeus’).
Presenting world famous music from operas such as ‘Madame Butterfly’, ‘La Bohème’, ‘Tosca’, ‘Carmen’, ‘La Traviata’, ‘The Pearl Fishers’, “CALLAS” is the most popular opera-themed show ever to be staged in the history of Irish theatre with over 15,000 seats sold.
