La Divina’s Favorites: 100 ΧΡΟΝΙΑ ΜΑΡΙΑ ΚΑΛΛΑΣ


Kyrenia Opera returned to Cyprus to present “La Divina’s Favorites: 100 Χρόνια Μαρία Κάλλας”, on Sunday, November 5 at Ipsonas Municipal Theatre in Limassol, Cyprus.

It was a beautiful night to remember with gorgeous singing from soprano Zoe Nicolaidou, mezzo-sopranos Rafaella Charalambous and Margarita Elia, accompanied by pianist Gergana Georgieva, under the direction of Constantinos Yiannoudes, Kyrenia Opera’s General Director.   

Maria Callas, a Greek American soprano and one of the most renowned and influential opera singers of the 20th century, was known as “La Divina” and was praised for her dazzling technique, wide-ranging voice, and dramatic interpretations.

This nickname was given to her by her fans due to her exceptional talent and stage presence. Callas had a vast repertoire that included works by Verdi, Bellini, Donizetti, Puccini, and Wagner, among others.

She is considered one of the greatest sopranos of all time, and her recordings are still widely listened to today.
