Simply (La) Divina

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 1 Comment

Greek-American soprano Maria Callas possessed extraordinary musical and dramatic talent, yet led a tumultuous life offstage. She is often referred to as “La Divina”, and Leonard Bernstein called her ‘the Bible of Opera.” On Friday, May 16th, Baltimore Concert Opera will present soprano Francesca Mondanaro and director Fabrizio Melano in “The Life and Music of Maria Callas” at The Engineers’ Club in Baltimore.  Recently, I spoke with BCO Executive Director Julia Cooke about the performance and Melano’s friendship with Ms. Callas.
