Franco Zeffirelli fictionalizes the golden days of Maria Callas, opera's most notorious diva, in this luminous tribute to one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. Fanny Ardant (ELIZABETH, 8 WOMEN) portrays the brilliant and impetuous Callas, coaxed out of her self-imposed exile by her long-time friend and former manager, Larry Kelly (Jeremy Irons) to star in a film version of Carmen. The film project re-ignites her passion for performance and rekindles her friendship with Larry, long ago estranged by her difficult nature. The outstanding supporting cast includes Joan Plowright (TEA WITH MUSSOLINI) as a music critic and life-long friend of Callas', the smouldering Gabriel Garko (HIS SECRET LIFE) as Callas' May-December leading man Don Jose, and dreamy newcomer Jay Rodan as Larry's artist boyfriend, Michael, who is inspired by Callas' recordings to create beauty.
