Event description

Description

Please join fellow RSGC parents and alumni parents for our 2nd Annual HotDocs Event: a screening of Maria by Callas, preceded by champagne, oysters, and other nibbles worthy of a diva. And yes, there will be popcorn!

The private cocktail reception begins at 5:00pm followed by a screening of the documentary at 6:30pm.

Film synopsis:

“This is what a star is made of.”

In Tom Volf’s 2018 documentary, Maria by Callas, the 20th-century soprano is finally allowed to tell her own turbulent story through letters, journals, interviews, and rarely-heard concert clips. By turns famous (as the “voice of the century” and “the Bible of opera”) and infamous (scandals, rivalries, her passionate affair with Aristotle Onassis---who threw her over for Jackie Kennedy), Callas died at the young age of 53 in 1976, but is still the subject of scrutiny and adoration. This compelling new film gives her a fresh voice. It will delight confirmed opera fans, and win over some new ones.
