The Maria Callas Monaco Gala & Awards is inspired by the legendary Gala, which was held in Monaco in 1960, where the greatest Opera Diva ever, Maria Callas alias ‘’La Divina‘’, enchanted the crowds and the Royal couple of Prince Rainier & Princess Grace of Monaco with her unique voice.
By reviving the Maria Callas Monaco Gala in the place the Diva cherished most, spending long periods of her life with her great love Aristotle Onassis, Ioanna Efthimiou, President & Founder of the Gala, aims to celebrate the Callas’s infinite talent and pay homage to her remarkable career.
The first Edition of the Gala was held in May 2021 with great success, and by the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert, who was the first who embraced this effort.
With this year’s unique event of Maria Callas Monaco Gala & Awards, we aim to celebrate all together again the legend of La Divina in the historical place in which this myth first began!
