Daisy Goodwin on Maria Callas, La Divina photo

The legendary American-born Greek soprano Maria Callas, known simply as la divina, was one of the greatest opera voices of all time, and to this day remains Warner Music’s all time best selling classical singer.

Join bestselling author – and Callas aficionado – Daisy Goodwin in celebration of the centenary of the great legend’s birth in conversation with journalist and critic Rupert Christiansen for an exploration of the role of the ‘diva’ and why, even a century later, Maria Callas remains and unrivalled icon for the modern-day woman.

The unique evening will be further brought to life with musical selections performed by award-winning soprano, Josephine Goddard.
