Grant Golden reviews the Kavinoky Theatre's final presentation of the year.
Buffalo, NY – Inspired by a series of classes the legendary opera diva Maria Callas conducted at Julliard near the end of her illustrious career, this sparkling, rich, and mercurial play is an illuminating portrait of genius and artistic temperament, gloriously realized in a pyrotechnical display of theater fireworks.
As the charismatic Miss Callas puts two promising students through her exacting and demanding pace, she also recounts for us her halcyon days at La Scala, her tortuous marriage to Meneghini, and her great, doomed love for Aristotle Onassis. By the Pulitzer Prize winning author of LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!
"Master Class" plays through June 2nd at the Kavinoky Theatre on the D'Youville College Campus.
