Master Class, according to press notes, "is the story of renowned opera diva Maria Callas, while teaching a master class in front of an audience: us! She's glamorous, larger than life, and drop-dead funny! What begins as a class becomes an intimate and revealing look into her life: we learn about Callas' tumultuous affair with Aristotle Onassis; her early days as an ugly duckling, the fierce hatred of her rivals, and the unforgiving press that savaged her at first. Master Class is a tour-de-force lesson underscored by simple truths about life and art."
