To commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of her death, Arthaus are delighted to present this new film ‘Callas Assoluta’ by Phillip Kohly. Just as Maria Callas reinvigorated opera, so this documentary is a fitting and spirited commemoration to the vivacious diva. In this film, Anna Bolena, La Sonnambula, and Don Carlos – operas of which no footage remains – will come back to life for the first time. The film includes rarely seen archive footage from Callas's glory years – the 1950s and 60s.

BBC Music Magazine

January 2008


“Philipe Kohly's documentary is presented with a voiceover laid on top of both still and moving images from Callas's life and career.”

New York Times

“Maria Callas…..the quintessential opera diva of the 20th century”
