2872 Maria by Callas: In Her Own Words

Ave, Maria or The legendary diva - in her own words

Luna Exclusive! Forty years after her death the great opera singer Maria Callas tells her own story. French documentary maker Tom Volf spent four years searching for previously unknown footage, unseen photographs, private recordings, personal home movies and candid letters composed by the legendary diva. Guided by Callas' epistles (read aloud by French acting royalty Fanny Ardant) Maria is a stunning portrait of a woman whose magnificent voice was matched by her tempestuous marriage to Aristotle Onassis and scandal-plagued personal life. As Maria's story unfolds we catch rare glimpses of her in the company of major 20th-century figures including Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Alain Delon, Yves Saint-Laurent, Winston Churchill, J.F.K., Luchino Visconti and Elizabeth Taylor.
