Summary
Beautifully recreates the magic, passion and artistry of the opera diva Maria Callas, known as "the voice of the century". Gives a loving tribute to what could have possibly happened at the end of Callas's life, whose death came at the age of 53. Callas was a temperamental diva. She captured all the fiery intensity of legend on and off the stage. Her tempestuous relationship with her former manager is what finally persuades her to re-launch her career, despite her fading powers
