“There are two people in me, ‘Maria’ and ‘Callas’… ”

For the first time, 40 years after her death, the most famous opera singer ever tells her own story — in her own words. A portrayal of an artist on a quest for perfection who became a global icon, a passionate woman with an extraordinary destiny, Maria by Callas is the story of a remarkable life told in the first person. Callas sheds light on Maria, revealing a diva as tempestuous as she is vulnerable — a moment of intimacy with a legendary figure, filled with all the emotion expressed by her unique voice.

Featuring previously unknown footage, unseen photographs, personal Super 8 films, private live recordings, intimate letters and rare behind-the scenes archival footage for the first time in colour.

Featuring images and footage of Callas, Onassis, Marilyn Monroe, Alain Delon, Yves Saint-Laurent, J.F. Kennedy, Luchino Visconti, Winston Churchill, Grace Kelly and Liz Taylor, among others.

An exclusive documentary by French director Tom Wolf for one of the greatest opera stars of all time.

Wolf worked for the film for almost 5 years and has managed to peek behind the public persona of Callas and find a glimmer of the woman behind the star.
