Maria by Callas
This is the first film to tell the life story of Maria Callas, the legendary Greek/American opera singer, in her own words. Told through performances, television interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs—nearly all of which have never been shown to the public—the film reveals he essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New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.
Assembling the material for the film took director Volf four years of painstaking research, which includes personal outreach to dozens of friends and associates, who allowed him to share their personal memorabilia in the film. When recordings of Calla’s voice aren’t available, Joyce DiDonato, one of contemporary opera’s biggest star, reads her words.
