I just met a girl named Maria


Maria Callas, who put the "prima" in prima donna, also put the bling into opera before the word existed.

See how she did it in a new exhibition at the Metropolitan Opera (Concourse Level; 64th & Broadway, New York City).

It opens today (Friday, January 19, 2007) at 10 a.m.

Admission is free.

Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays Noon-6 p.m.; Closed Saturdays and these selected dates: 1/26; 2/5; 2/16, 2/26; The show runs through March 3, 2007; www.metopera.org; 212-362-6000.

And, if anyone is interested in hearing La Callas, this Saturday, January 20th, at 1:30p.m. the Metropolitan Opera radio broadcast will be an archive performance of her singing the title role in "Lucia di Lammermoor", originally broadcast in 1956. Opera buffs shouldn't miss it.
