Master Class

A Sleek Comedy
Directed by Jeanne Skattum

Maria Callas is teaching a master class in front of an audience: us. She’s glamorous, commanding, larger than life—and drop-dead funny. She glories in her own career, dabbles in opera gossip, and flat-out seduces the audience in this sleek comedy about the power, and price of, being an artist in an unforgiving world.
