“Here on stage, the extraordinarily talented Shelley Cooper becomes Maria Callas!” Jim Gilles, The Hollywood Times
In La Divina: The Last Interview of Maria Callas, the audience eavesdrops on La Divina’s interview with journalist Mike Wallace (silent and invisible) and journeys through the life of the extremely complex, legendary artist. Ms. Cooper, a classically trained soprano, masterfully treats the audience to several operatic gems including “O Mio Babbino Caro,” “Habanera,” and “Vissi d’arte.” The show provides fascinating tidbits from the singer’s life —how opera kept Callas alive during World War II — and delves some into her complicated relationship with Aristotle Onassis while offering insight into the singer’s own torments.
