Tyne Daly continues her triumphant run from Broadway as opera legend Maria Callas with Dianne Pilkington playing the role of Sophie de Palma.
Pilkington made her professional debut in Les Miserables and was last in the West End in The 39 Steps. She is best known for the role of Glinda in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre where she played for a run of 3 years.
Other cast in the production are opera singer Naomi O’Connell, Gerard Carey (The Invisible Man, Spamalot), opera singer Garrett Sorenson and making his West Debut, Jeremy Cohen after also playing in the Broadway run.
Legendary opera diva Maria Callas won renown both for her voice and for her dramatic stage presence. Terrence McNally's play shows her late in life, teaching a master class for young singers. As she coaxes, prods and inspires students into giving the performances of their lives, she reveals her own history.
