Tickets Still Available for Callas in Concert (Via Hologram) at Mondavi on Sunday

Forty years ago, Maria Callas shrugged off the earthly binds of temporal life, leaving a bereft world longing for her presence, her performances, her voice. Now she returns to the stage, in all her grandeur, confirming her immortality to stunned audiences.

The UC Davis Mondavi Center will be the only West Coast production of Callas in Concert, which brings the beloved La Divina to the stage via hologram on Sunday, singing to the accompaniment of a full live orchestra. As this unprecedented performance unfolds, you will surrender all notions of what is real and get lost in the magic of perhaps the best opera singer of all time.
