Dear Movie Lovers,

Please join me this Sunday to watch Tom Volf’s documentary about the iconic Greek-American opera singer, Maria Callas.

This is event co-organized in cooperation with the Warsaw Opera, Ballet & Concerts Group.

Regarding the documentary, Volf spent nearly five years assembling an intimate portrait of the late opera legend illustrated by exclusive footage, photographs, Callas’ own Super 8 films, private live recordings, letters, and rare behind-the scenes archival footage.

Decades after the legendary prima donna left the scene forever, filmmaker Tom Volf fell in love with Maria Callas. He traveled the globe to interview Callas's closest friends and colleagues, who opened their collections, unveiling a trove of previously unknown photos, many of which came from Maria's own albums. Composed with the support of manyof Maria's loved ones, including Nadia Stancioff, her longtime best friend, and Georges Pretre, her favorite conductor, who for the first time in forty years agreed to collaborate on a book about her, Maria by Callas, the definitive, unique product of countless hours of research, offers a new perspective, a personal album as Maria herself would have presented, invoking the diva's own voice.

After the movie we will go for a bite to eat or drinks, as usual :-)

Hope to see you there :-)

Kind regards,

Anne
