Maria Callas performs again in hologram

Soprano diva Maria Callas will perform in Australia as a hologram four decades after her death.

On Thursday 7 December at Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne, American-Greek soprano Maria Callas will once again grace the stage for a one-night only performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra… albeit in in hologram form.

Presented by the European Union, this event marks a century since the birth of the quintessential diva, with Maria Callas: A Concert in Hologram the result of an innovative melding of 3D technology and digitally remastered recordings of the singer’s most well-known arias.
