Tyne Daly plays Maria Callas, the formidable opera diva who, while teaching a master class, reflects on her life and art.

Why See Master Class?

Legendary opera diva Maria Callas won renown both for her voice and for her dramatic stage presence.

Terrence McNally's play shows her late in life, teaching a master class for young singers. As she coaxes, prods and inspires students into giving the performances of their lives, she reveals her own history.
