Maria Callas is returning to stages across the world thanks to cutting-edge holographic technology, conducted by Eímear Noone.
Our partners BASE Hologram have just announced the first worldwide dates for its ground-breaking hologram tour featuring renowned opera sensation Maria Callas in North America, Mexico, South America and Europe — click here to see a preview of the concerts.
Callas in Concert will bring the famed opera star back to the stage 50 years after she last performed through breath-taking state-of-the-art digital and laser technology for a live full concert experience featuring original recordings digitally remastered with a 55- piece orchestra. The tour will launch in California before heading to Mexico, South America, a return to the United States and then Europe. Setting up the project and conducting the orchestra will be multi-award winning Eímear Noone, credited as “a timeless artist and a woman of right now” (North America and Europe dates only). Eímear’s recent performance highlights includes performances at the Paris Philharmonie, with the Sydney Symphony orchestra, Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, Krakow Film Music Festival as well as a recent celebration of gaming music with Danish National Symphony Orchestra.
Callas in Concert is scripted and directed by Creative Director Stephen Wadsworth, a veteran of many of Callas’ performances, including La Scala, the Met, Covent Garden, who last directed Terrence McNally’s Callas play Master Class on Broadway, and runs the post-graduate opera training at The Juilliard School. Added to this, Eímear’s expertise and experience in the multimedia live concert field is an invaluable contribution to the technical set-up and performance of this ambitious project.
Warner Classics, the label of Maria Callas’ recorded legacy, has provided the sound recordings of the diva’s voice for this experience. Their recently released Callas: Live (42-CD) and Callas Remastered (Complete studio recordings 69-CD), all remastered with the latest technology, have been hailed as a revelation. In addition, to tie in with the start of the tour, Warner Classics will soon release CALLASINCONCERT, which will feature the program of the show.
