MASTER CLASS restages in the Philippines

due to insistent public demand, Philippine Opera Company will re-stage the Tony Award-winning show, MASTER CLASS, about the legendary opera diva Maria Callas.

featuring Philippine television, film and stage actress, Cherie Gil as Callas.

MASTER CLASS opened on Broadway in 1995. It is based on a series of master classes given by the renowned opera singer Maria Callas at the Juilliard School of Music in New York in 1971 and 1972. Callas was the greatest dramatic soprano of her generation and also a controversial figure. Her restless and tempestuous personality often led her into disputes with opera managements and feuds with rival singers. However, she was adored by her fans and was the subject of constant media attention, including gossip about her jet-set life with the wealthy Greek ship owner Aristotle Onassis.

Cherie Gil would be very fit in this role with her diva attitude in Philippine cinema and television. she will nail this part I'm sure!
