Master Class is the Tony Award-winning play based on a series of master classes in opera given at the Julliard School of Music by the renowned opera singer Maria Callas.

Maria Callas herself is glamorous, commanding, larger-than-life, caustic, and surprisingly drop-dead funny all at the same time. Both dismayed and impressed by her students, Callas recalls glories of her own career. She tells her students about her younger years, her fierce hatred of her rivals, her battles with the press, her triumphs, as well as her affair with Aristotle Onassis.

The cast of Master Class features Carla Kendall (of Wayne, NJ) as opera singer Maria Callas, Danielle Pennisi (Cedar Grove, NJ) as Sharon, Jeff Dopson (Lake Hiawatha, NJ) as Tony, Kelly Miller (Dover, NJ) as Sophie, Ken Magos (Maplewood, NJ) as Manny and Claudia Metz (Boonton, NJ) in the role of Stagehand.
