Meet Maria Callas, the world's most famous soprano. She's glamorous, compelling and caustic - and now, she wants to pass on her legacy to a new generation of singers. As her masterclass progresses, it becomes clear that this force of nature would rather teach life lessons than opera singing - and as she alternately destroys and inspires her students, the iconic opera diva offers a glimpse into her own turbulent past.|
This February, Opera Mariposa is proud to launch the new Mariposa Theatre Wing with Terrence McNally's Tony Award-winning play about the operatic life. Featuring a multi-award-winning cast and musical highlights by Bellini, Puccini and Verdi, you won't want to miss this riveting drama where singers and audience alike spend an unforgettable evening with one of the most legendary artists of our time.

What critics have to say about Master Class:
"For Mr. McNally, the play demonstrates his ability to create rich, vivid, satisfying theater...MASTER CLASS is an unembarrassed, involving meditation on Callas' life and the nature of her art. Such subjects are not easily dramatized, certainly not with this brio."
- The New York Times
"Terrence McNally's new play MASTER CLASS...will be talked about for years to come whenever people point to theater experiences that genuinely deserve to be labeled by the overused word 'great.'"
- The Hollywood Reporter
"It is Terrence McNally's total triumph in his MASTER CLASS...This is a night to remember."
- New York Post
"Get a ticket: MASTER CLASS is mesmerizing theater."
