Master Class Cast & Creative

Master Class is a portrait of opera diva Maria Callas told through her recollections of the glories, triumphs, and tragedies of her own life and career. Her voice is gone, her lover is long departed, and her sanity could possibly be next. All she has is a lonely itinerary of master classes and luggage packed full of the memories that are her only travel companion.

About Master Class

What Is the Story of Master Class?
Inspired by a series of real-life sessions at Juilliard taught by Maria Callas in the 1970s, after her opera career had ended, Terrence McNally’s Tony Award-winning play presents the star in full diva mode, delivering unvarnished criticism to a trio of young singers and ruminating on a life of tragedy and triumph.
