Description by New Video Group:
Hailed as "La Divina," the legendary Maria Callas is renowned for her spectacular voice, her tumultuous romantic life, and her stormy temperament.
MARIA CALLAS offers a stirring chronicle of the unforgettable soprano and actress. Born in the U.S. and educated in Greece, Callas established her career in Europe - much in part due to her title role in Bellini's Norma - before becoming one of the most versatile and celebrated vocalists of the mid-20th century. Despite her remarkable talent, Callas was beset with hardship and scandal for most of her life, most famously her heartbreaking affair with Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis, her acrimonious contract disputes with the Metropolitan Opera, and the vocal difficulties that would eventually end her career.
