Maria by Callas

Maria by Callas

The legendary opera singer, once described as "pure electricity" by Leonard Bernstein, eloquently recounts her life and career through interviews, unpublished letters, diaries and memoirs - and, especially, through her mesmerising performances - in a riveting self-portrait.

"Maria by Callas provides an excellent introduction to Callas's artistry. The director, Tom Volf, allows several arias to play in full, so that it's possible to hear the astonishing sustained quality of her voice and to see, in performances of Bizet and Bellini, among others, what we are repeatedly told - that she was also a good actress.

The documentary runs, chronologically, through career highlights, including a ridiculed 1958 performance of 'Norma' that was canceled after one act (Callas had bronchitis) and her eyebrow-raising more-than-friendship with Aristotle Onassis, which began when both were married to others and ended, for a while anyway, after she learned… that he was marrying Jackie Kennedy… A documentary that revitalizes history through primary sources, to illuminating, at times enthralling effect." - Ben Kenigsberg, NY Times
