Summary:
This exceptional documentary explores the person, the vocal power and the dramatic talents of Maria Callas. It celebrates both the diva and the woman, who was always torn between her personal aspirations and her artistic ambitions. Maria Callas, la Divina, passed away on September 16, 1977 at age of 53. She was--without the shadow of a doubt--the greatest soprano of the 20th century. But she was also known for the scandals that exploded around her and for the isolation and silence she imposed on herself in her final years. Her reputation was built by the dramatic power of her performances, in which she breathed astonishing life into each of her many roles, revealing the true natures of characters like Tosca, Norma, Medea, and Violetta.
