Master Class

by Terrence McNally

Performance Dates

January 20-28, 2012

Summary

Master Class is loosely based on Terrence McNally's actual experience of attending a series of master classes given by Maria Callas at Julliard in 1972. In the play, Maria, alternately dismayed and impressed by the students who parade before her, retreats into recollections about the glories of her own life and career. Included in her musings are her younger years as an ugly duckling, her fierce hatred of her rivals, the unforgiving press that savaged her early performances, her triumphs at La Scala, and her affair with Aristotle Onassis. It culminates into a monologue about sacrifice taken in the name of art.
