Tanglewood - Shakespeare & Company

    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 – now being presented by Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA.

McNally takes us inside Callas’ infamous sessions, which she conducted late in her career. Callas regales us with the details of her illustrious and controversial professional life, encouraging her pupils to take notes. Master Class prompts the question so often posed by artists: What is the price of fame?

Actress Annette Miller embodies Callas in a true tour de force performance. Miller was last seen at Shakespeare & Company’s 35th Season hit, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife. She and Elizabeth Aspenlieder join us - she is the Communications Director and an Artistic Associate at Shakespeare & Company.
