Opera diva Maria Callas is holding a singing master class. Alternately dismayed and impressed by the students who parade before her, she retreats into recollections about the glories and disappointments of her own life and career. It culminates in a monologue about sacrifice taken in the name of art.
Master Class draws from transcripts of the 23 Master Class sessions taught at the Juilliard School in New York City in 1971 by the most famous diva in history: Maria Callas. Written by Pulitzer nominee playwright Terrence McNally, Master Class features the music of Bellini, Puccini, and Verdi.
The play opened in 1995 and won three Tony Awards: Best Play, Best Leading Actress, and Best Featured Actress. It enjoyed a record-breaking run. In 1996 it began a national tour starring Utah Festival favorite, Suzan Hanson. Suzan will reclaim her role as Maria Callas.
