The famous New York singer and songwriter, Rufus Wainwright, will be giving a performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus inspired by a series of interviews with the one and only opera diva, Maria Callas. The show is a visual version of Prima Donna, and is being staged in Greece six years after its global premier at the Manchester International Festival.

Prepare for a magical evening under the Acropolis, where you will witness four arts come together: film, photography, opera and live performance.

Three lyric singers will be performing music pieces while images of the diva are screened in the background. Wainwright has recruited artist and cinematographer Francesco Vezzoli, and famous photographer Cindy Sherman, for the task.

In the second part, the creator will be performing his own pieces and a selection of his favourite songs in a concert that is not to be missed.

The film is in French and has Greek surtitles.
