“Art like love and life is passionate, passion like life is dramatic.”
The drama, passion, love and art of opera diva Maria Callas is captured by Dr. Maria Boundas Bakalis in her performance of “La Maria, the Life and Loves of Maria Callas” an original play based on words and writings of Maria Callas and interwoven with excerpts from Callas’ recordings. The compelling and complex Callas is brought vividly to life through Ms. Bakalis’ sensitive portrayal. Callas and Bakalis promise to captivate and capture both the hearts and the minds of the audience.
Professor Bakalis holds a BA from De Paul University, MA from Northeastern Illinois University and Doctorate from Northern Illinois University with a Certificate in Acting from London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. As an educator, actor, director, and playwright Ms. Bakalis believes in the power of the arts to reflect the human condition and humanity that unites us all.
