Book Discussion: "Maria Callas: The Woman behind the Legend" by Arianna Huffington

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 @ 5:30pm
The Society of the Four Arts

Facilitated by Billy David

Callas’ career is brought brilliantly to life in this biography, from her transformation from a chubby, painfully shy girl into a magnificent, celebrated soprano, to her conflict with her larger-than-life image.

For millions of people, the great soprano Maria Callas (1923-1977) remains the focus of such unparalleled fascination that there is still no higher praise for singers than “…the best since Callas.” In this biography, Callas’ career is brought brilliantly to life, from her transformation from a chubby, painfully shy girl into a magnificent, celebrated soprano, to her conflict with her larger-than-life image. Huffington makes this struggle, which was at the center of her life, also the center of the biography. Using a wealth of previously unpublished material and numerous first-hand interviews, Huffington documents Callas’ interminable conflict with her mother, her deeply emotional relationship with her voice, the gradual unraveling of her first marriage, her passionate love affair with Aristotle Onassis, and her agony and humiliation at his leaving her.
