About the movie

The upcoming movie on the biopic of Maria Callas, the World’s greatest opera singer will showcase real-life incidents, indicating how unique, beautiful, and tragic accounts of her life are.

At her break-down of career time, at the age of 23, Callas was so broke that she could not afford a coat, when she met her husband, Giovanni Battista Meneghini, at an opera festival in Verona, where his brother-in-law, the festival official head was looking for beautiful singers to guide the elderly merchants. 

She died in 1977 from a heart attack. She was one of the best-known and most influential sopranos of the 20th century and was known by many as La Divina, or The Divine One.
