The voice of the century, a diva of unparalleled beauty, and the centre of many social scandals. Her extraordinary biography is not unlike a tragic opera or a bestselling novel. Maria Callas felt misunderstood her entire life. Focusing on the inner clash between her two opposing personalities, this film is the first to tell the artist’s story from her own internal perspective. Callas desired worldwide recognition above all, while Maria dreamt about a simple, happy life. Half the materials included in this outstanding documentary has never been shown before.
