Gala Maria Callas
Palais Garnier - on 02 December 2023 at 7:30 pm
In few words:
To mark the centenary of Maria Callas’ birth on 2 December 1923, the Paris Opera is staging a special gala to support the institution’s activities on the anniversary date.
A compelling singer and a deeply moving tragedienne, Maria Callas transformed the art of operatic acting and singing. She performed three times on the stage of the Palais Garnier: at a Legion d’Honneur gala in 1958, in Norma in 1964 under the baton of Georges Prêtre, and in Franco Zeffirelli’s famous production of Tosca. She also had a special bond with Paris, where she lived and died on 16 September 1977.
Conducted by Eun Sun Kim, the soprano Sondra Radvanovsky will pay tribute to Callas in a setting designed by Robert Carsen.
