Finally the competition finds it’s roof at the “home”of Callas, The Greek national opera.
It was a very emotional evening full of songs and goodwill, as all her friends were there to applaud her. The voice is in an excellent form, full bodied, with top notes untouched.
It was a great evening in honour of a very important artist, who for so many years worked incessantly performing a multitude of roles at the Greek Opera House.
We wish her all the best, and soon back onstage.
