A myth that contains two personalities aware of each other, living in the same woman, in the same body, in the same soul; “There are two people in me: I would like to be Maria, but I have to live up to Callas’ expectations”. *
One personality troubled by life, childhood, maturity and loves, the other lived in a dimension of art that leads her to be unique in her voice and in the interpretation of the characters, creating an unattainable myth because it is unique. Humanity and Art, Maria and Callas.
A “Tacer cantando” where Maria is sucked into the bowels of her torment and where Callas frees what she really is, transforming her song into freedom.
Maria is La Callas, as she jokingly defined herself in an interview: “… because Callas was once Maria”. *
“I want to thank all the public who have been close to me in difficult moments, and not only in glory. They wrote to me, they adored me, they understood me. In general they loved me. Also for this I am very grateful, I feel nothing but gratitude for the world. That’s all”.*
