A master class with famed opera singer Maria Callas is an intimidating affair. Just ask Sophie, her first “victim” in Terrence McNally’s Tony Award-winning Master Class. McNally takes us inside Callas’ infamous sessions, which she conducted late in her career. Callas—played by the inimitable Elliot Norton and IRNE Award winner Annette Miller—regales us with the details of her illustrious and controversial professional life, encouraging her pupils (and the audience) to take notes. Master Class prompts the question so often posed by artists: What is the price of fame?
