The Seven Deaths of Maria Callas
What: A meeting of two divas across time, the Serbian conceptual artist Marina Abramovic plays the most feted opera diva of all time Maria Callas. The New York Times described the production as ‘part séance, part mixtape.’ Abramovic revisits seven of Callas’ operatic deaths in defining roles like Tosca, Carmen and Madame Butterfly, then turns to the singer’s real and her final death of a ‘broken heart’ in Paris in 1977. Veteran actor Willem Dafoe plays shipowner Aristotle Onassis (and Callas’ great love). A major international co-production between the Greek National Opera, Bavaria State Opera and Berlin State Opera, Opera De Paris and Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, with music composed by Marko Nikodijević.
