About

The cultural organization "Lykofos" honoring the 100th anniversary of the birth of Maria Callas presents on August 28 and 30 at the Herodio the historical opera "Norma" by the favorite composer of the great Greek soprano Vincenzo Bellini, directed by Tom Wolff and conducted by Eugene Kohn.


An international production with an all-star team of performers and contributors from around the world, which will travel to the capitals of Europe as part of the international celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the birth of the leading treble, making its world premiere in Athens, with the live partnership of the National Symphony Orchestra and Choir of ERT.

The famous French director Tom Wolfe, who has become the most important collector and specialist of the work of Maria Callas with the multi-award winning documentary "Maria by Callas", after the sold out appearances of Monica Bellucci who captivated the Athens audience with the reading of letters of Maria Callas at Herodeion in 2021 under his directorial instructions, collaborates again with the cultural organization "Lykofos" of Giorgos Lykiardopoulos and returns to Greece, this time with a brand new production dedicated to the great celebration.

Norma, Callas's favorite role, which she sang a total of 92 times on stage - more than any other opera - returns to the Herodion, where Callas herself sang in 1944 and 1957, and in Greece, the country where she gave a from Norma's most legendary performances, in 1960 in Epidaurus.

For this great undertaking, Tom Wolfe assembled an excellent international cast. The famous Lebanese-Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury in the title role, who in 2022 was named by the Dallas Opera "Maria Callas Debut Artist of the Year" and with appearances at the operas of Chicago, Dallas, Tokyo and Montreal, while in the role of Pollione the internationally acclaimed Greek tenor Marios Fragoulis, holder of the "Maria Callas" scholarship and with appearances in the most important theaters of the world (La Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, Novaya Opera in Moscow and Royal Albert Hall in London). He collaborated with Montserrat Caballé, Maria Guleghina and Angela Gheorgiu.

In the role of Adalgisa is the American soprano Theresa Carlomagno, while Oroveso, father of Norma, is performed by the acclaimed young bass Sava Vemić. Conducted by the American conductor Eugene Kohn, who accompanied Maria Callas on the piano during her Masterclass at the Juilliard School in New York in 1971 and was a student of the legendary conductor Fausto Cleva. The artistic team is completed by the great choreographer Ersi Pitta and the leading Greek stage designer and costume designer Yiannis Metzikof. The Mixed Choir "Fons Musicalis" under the direction of Kostis Konstandaras participates.

The production is under the auspices of the "Maria Callas" Foundation.
