This black tie event celebrates the Moss Arts Center's fifth anniversary with a sumptuous gala reception—featuring heavy h'ors d'oeuvres like chilled seafood, chicken and ham cordon bleu, vegetarian options, and more with an open bar—and an extraordinary performance you’ll always remember.
The opera world lost a legend with the death of Maria Callas in 1977. Her exquisite voice and performances astounded audiences, and her loss devastated millions of fans, many of whom never had the chance to see her perform live. Now Callas returns to the stage through groundbreaking holographic technology, confirming her immortality to fans all over the world. Callas in Concert brings the beloved soprano to the Moss Arts Center to perform with the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra in this extraordinary melding of art and technology. Fully remastered recordings of her most iconic performances of Bellini, Bizet, Verdi, and Puccini come to life as she sings them before your eyes. Experience her rapturous voice and timeless beauty, and the legendary emotional force that is Maria Callas as she inhabits her characters and evokes the drama that inspired the world to call her “La Divina.”
This performance is supported in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Black tie for this event is invited, but not required. We will see everything from suit and tie to black tie, as well as everything from cocktail dresses to full length gowns.
