ODEON OF HERODES ATTICUS
Prima donna by R. Wainwright
Wainwright presented a "visualized" version of his first opera Prima Donna with the help of two great artists: the visual artist - filmmaker Francesco Vezzoli and the renowned photographer Cindy Sherman. Three lyric singers performed excerpts from Prima Donna, along with screenings of a film containing images of the legendary Maria Callas. Francesco Vezzoli created this film specifically for this project, whereas the video projection reached its peak when Cindy Sherman appears. The opera Prima Donna is inspired by a series of interviews given by the unsurpassed opera diva Maria Callas, speaking for her role as a prima donna, the strength and the loneliness she hid.
