A moving and powerful contemporary opera, designed and directed by Alexander Kaniewski with original score by Helen Madden.
Retelling Euripides’ Medea through the lens of Maria Callis, Medea Maria parallels the story of the great opera singer and the character Medea who Callas played many times in her career. A tale of betrayal, heartbreak and the fury of a woman who would become her own legend.
