The most famous soprano in the world, a true diva, recounts her life 40 years after her death. Through never-before-seen films, photographs, and private letters compiled from archives and private collections from all over the world this unparalleled legend comes to the big screen. This extraordinary film also features Aristotle Onassis, Marilyn Monroe, Alain Delon, Yves Saint-Laurent, J.F. Kennedy, Luchino Visconti, Winston Churchill, Grace Kelly, and Liz Taylor, with Fanny Ardant narrating written word by Callas. The legend who led a tragic life and once said, “there are two people in me: Maria and La Callas,” is seen in such detail for the first time on the big screen with her accomplishments, private life, scandals, and loves.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
