Juilliard President Damian Woetzel and Consul General of Greece in New York Dinos Konstantinou invite everyone to attend an evening honoring the centenary of Maria Callas’ birth. During this special event, librettist, director, and Juilliard faculty member Stephen Wadsworth will explore Callas’ extraordinary life and her enduring impact on operatic history and craftsmanship with a program featuring recordings and a collection of rarely seen photos.
