The permanent exhibition “Maria Callas”
is hosted in the foyer on the first floor
of OLYMPIA Municipal Music Theater “Maria Callas”
in Athens city centre,
at the old premises of the Greek National Opera.
Some of the great diva’ s personal items,
now belonging to the collection owned by the City of Athens,
are at show,
narrating important moments of her life
and significant aspects of her work.
The design’s main aim was to create a micro-environment
for the visitor to feel as if the exhibition itself
has always been part of the unique and historic OLYMPIA theatre.
The power, uniqueness and glamour of Callas
are reflected in the atmosphere of the exhibition,
which, although “petite”, offers
a variety of visual and informational stimuli to the public.
The exhibition was inaugurated on May 20th, 2019
on OPANDA’s initiative,
with the support of the Maria Callas Greek Society.
