GR RECOMMENDS: Callas in Concert
This spectacle will bring famed opera star Maria Callas back to the stage 50 years after she last performed through state-of-the-art digital and laser technology for a live concert experience featuring original recordings digitally remastered, along with the live accompaniment of the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra. Callas in Concert is scripted and directed by Creative Director Stephen Wadsworth, a veteran of many of Callas’ performances. Callas left a lasting impact on the world of opera as the definition of the diva as artist – and is still one of classical music’s best-selling vocalists and, arguably, the greatest soprano that has ever lived.
