Maria Callas — A personal homage by soprano Maria Kahry

About the Event

Immerse yourself in the breathtaking architecture of Vienna's Krypta Peterskirche and enjoy a concert celebrating the 99th birthday of Maria Callas.
Maria Kahry sings in her honour all the glamorous roles that one inevitably associates with the unforgettable diva. Norma, La Traviata, Lucia di Lammermoor or Tosca: Bellini's and Donizetti's bel canto and Verdi's great Italian operas up to Puccini's verismo — nothing will be missing on this evening.
Maria Kahry's programme is a very personal homage to an extraordinary artist and a declaration of love for the high vocal art of the past.
