French premiere of Marko Nikodijevic’s opera “7 Deaths of Maria Callas”

The French premiere of Marko Nikodijevic’s and Marina Abramovic’s opera “7 Deaths of Maria Callas”, which premiered in Munich in late summer 2020 and revolves around the fate and sufferings of the great singer, is scheduled for 1 September 2021 in Paris at the Palais Garnier. “Feelings, that signal collapse”, as the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung commented on the nightmarish journey into the soprano’s life, who, while revolutionising the opera world of the post war decades with her outstanding interpretations, suffered a severe mental breakdown.

The response to the Munich production in October 2020, which was only streamed for a short time, was quite overwhelming - garnering an incredible 30,000 clicks.
