ODE TO CALLAS

Irish Independent - Weekend Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

The leg­en­dar­ily tal­ented opera singer Maria Callas died on September 16, 1977. To mark the 40th an­niver­sary of her death, the opera-themed show Cel­e­brat­ing Callas — which is writ­ten and pro­duced by Niall Mor­ris and has con­sis­tently en­joyed sell-out per­for­mances in the last five years — comes to the Na­tional Con­cert Hall on September 17. Ir­ish so­prano Máire Flavin ( pic­tured) plays Callas, and the roles of the men in her life are per­formed by Ir­ish bari­tone Ga­van Ring and UK tenor Alexan­der James Ed­wards, who re­cently played Lu­ciano Pavarotti in the hit show Nes­sun Dorma.
