"The 10 Faces of Maria Callas" is Teatro Grattacielo's first event of the 2023 opera season, and it will celebrate the 100th birthday of the legendary Greek-American soprano.

"Maria Callas is one of the 20th century's most legendary and enduring icons. She captivated audiences with her passionate performances and impeccable style.

Review: Botstein and ASO Bring Strauss’s Seldom-Heard DAPHNE to Carnegie Hall Photo
It‚Äôs hard to compete with yourself ‚ÄĒ especially the ‚Äėyou‚Äô that was at the height of your powers. I think that‚Äôs part of the problem with the place that Richard Strauss‚Äôs DAPHNE holds in the composer‚Äôs canon. Often referred to as a second- (or even third-) tier work, it has much to offer and enjoy, as the performance by the American Symphony Orchestra under Leon Botstein at Carnegie Hall the other night proved quite well.
