A Tony award-winning play by Terrence McNally
Directed by Shauna Kanter
“Irene Glezos’ Callas took me on a journey of power, heart-break, delicacy, commitment, and art, leaving me breathlessly on my feet at the end.”
Jeanne-Michele Charbonnet, International Opera Singer
Master Class is an experience in excellence as Irene Glezos brilliantly brings to life the depth of artistry that Callas challenged others to strive for. Based on the master classes that Maria Callas conducted at the Juilliard School in the early 70’s the play celebrates the art of opera and singing as we journey through the inner workings of the soul of Ms. Callas and the challenges she demands of her students, to the failures of her romances, to the quest she ultimately challenges of us all.

“This performance was so fully committed that you believed you were truly experiencing Maria Callas, up close and personal. The direction along with Ms. Glezos’ performance took us on an incredible and emotional journey that will not soon be forgotten!”
Victoria Livengood, Metropolitan Opera Mezzo Soprano
