Listeners will have a grand time with Lorelei King's versatile narration of this fictionalized account of the life of famed opera singer Maria Callas. Listeners will feel as though they are globe-trotting alongside Callas as she performs in the classic opera houses of Europe and the U.S. King gives Callas a slightly detached, poised tone as she rehearses and performs, and socializes with the rich and famous of the 1950s and 1960s--including Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and, of course, her longtime lover, Aristotle Onassis. King excels at switching among Greek, Italian, British, French, and American accents. While the story focuses on Callas's career and romantic life, including her unsatisfying marriage to her manager, King also brings forth the resentments that existed between Callas and her critical mother.
