Down Memory Lane: "Master Class", the Play (1997, L.A.); A Note by Payman Akhlaghi (2018)

Down Memory Lane: "Master Class" (1997)
A play about the operatic diva, Maria Callas, performed by Ms. Faye Dunaway, 1997, Los Angeles.

(*) First appeared on August the 13th, 2018, at, under Down Memory Lane: "Master Class"....

I had to look up the exact date (June 1997) and the venue (Doolittle Theater) for this post, yet 21 years later, I find myself with vivid recollections, and a permeating fine impression, of the play, which regrettably I only saw once. Looking back, it was a privilege to be there that evening, one occasional play among the many movies and fewer concerts which I used to attend on a regular basis. No matter how many times you might have heard of or seen a seasoned performer of her class in films, the aura on the stage was captivating, riveting, disarming.

This could become another long note, but brevity may serve us better this evening.
