La Callas  THE BEST OF  

Written and Performed by Paola HadjilambriCyprus

Fri 11/8 7:30pm

drama, comedy, tragedy, musical, 65 min.

This show celebrates the life of a woman who was hounded by reporters all over the world. A perfectionist, Maria Callas believed that two different women lived in her: Maria, who yearned for a normal life, and Callas, the public figure and icon with the reputation of a tempestuous diva. “An intimate revelation of the torrid love affair between Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis,” says Paul Lambis, “it sets the stage for a Greek tragedy that recalls the tangled web of desire and deceit.” Actress Paola Hadjilambri says, “Callas was a perfectionist, just like me. Fully inhabiting one of the world’s most chic operatic personas is a source of inspiration to me. I have no intention of representing her with anything other than great respect.” Director: Paola Hadjilambri. Stage Manager: Argyris Hadjilambris. PR & Management: Phyto Stratis. Lights & Sound: Anastasios Karydis. Show image by Paul Lambis.
