Maria Callas's life had all the drama and passion of the operatic roles that made her one of the biggest stars of all time but it was her love affair with billionaire Aristotle Onassis and his ultimate betrayal with JFK's widow Jackie Kennedy that sealed Maria's fate as a 20th Century icon. Narrated by the voice of Simon Callow CBE ('Four Weddings & A Funeral'), "CALLAS" captures Maria's extraordinary life-story through rare archive footage on a large screen with performances from her most famous operas: Madama Butterfly, Tosca, La Traviata, Carmen, including the classics 'Casta Diva' and 'Nessun Dorma'. Hailed as the voice of her generation, soprano Máire Flavin plays the role of Maria Callas, with rising star Amy Ni Fhearraigh as Jackie Kennedy and Patrick Hyland as Callas's husband Battista Meneghini. (Onassis tbc). Written & Produced by Niall Morris, "CALLAS" is the most successful opera-themed show ever staged at the National Concert Hall with an unprecedented run of sold-out performances, the most recent of which was praised by President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins and the Ambassador of Greece. Presented fully stage with costumes and an orchestra conducted by Brazilian maestro Marçio da Silva, "CALLAS" captures the glamour and romance of a bygone era and has audiences standing and shouting 'encore!' 

Presented by Pat Egan & Niall Morris
