Maria Callas: Letters & Memories
Renowned Italian actress and beauty icon Monica Bellucci is coming to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus on September 28 - 30, 2020.  Having one of the most talented actresses in the world perform under the Acropolis is big news enough, even without mentioning the role she will be performing. Belucci will be incarnating opera singer Maria Callas and she will be doing so while struggling with her own fear of the stage.

"Going on stage is almost a kind of violence that I put myself through", says Belucci adding that as opposed to films, where scenes are shot one by one, in theatre one's concentration must last for the duration of the show.

Bellucci recently brought Maria Callas to life at the Studio Marigny in Paris, reading excerpts of Tom Volf’s “Lettres et Mémoire”, a monologue based on unpublished letters of the great soprano. These three unique performances in Athens will bring to light hidden and unknown aspects of the iconic singer, taking audiences on a journey into the life and career of the great diva. From her childhood in New York to the years of the war in Athens and from the first steps of her career to her marriage and her stormy love affair with Aristotle Onassis.
