Berkeley Rep is extremely pleased that the inimitable Rita Moreno will seize the stage as Maria Callas, the opera diva for whom “art is domination.” A fictionalized account of Callas’ legendary master classes at Juilliard in the early ‘70s, acclaimed playwright Terrence McNally (Love! Valour! Compassion!) exposes the vulnerability and doubt that are hidden under the remorseless ego and sparkling humor of this most gifted woman. With a dazzling combination of cattiness and canniness, Callas exposes her life, loves and artistry for the benefit of her students in her “Master Class.” Rita Moreno is an artist of immense talent, the only female entertainer to have won four major awards: the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony. Under the direction of Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project), Master Class promises to be one of THE theatrical events of the year!
