The soprano Maria Callas is considered one of the most famous opera singers in the world. ‎She combined her extraordinary bel canto technique with her amazing theatrical talent, ‎earning her the name of ‘the Divine Voice of Opera’. She was incredibly versatile and capable ‎of singing whatever she wished. ‎

Program

Callas never imposed any limits on her art or music. She also came under the international ‎spotlight for her relationship with the Greek multimillionaire and tycoon Aristotle Onassis, ‎who finally married Jacqueline Kennedy, an event echoed in all the gossip magazines. Callas ‎led the world ranks as an opera singer. She was a brilliant, temperamental, highly determined ‎diva. ‎
Begoña Alberdi will sing some of Maria Callas’s most famous arias in this luxury tribute to the ‎great soprano and to the world of opera. ‎
