Marina Abramović’s opera performance 7 Deaths of Maria Callas premieres in the UK


One of the ways that Maria Callas has inspired me is through her mix between strength and fragility that you can see in both her work and life. That mix became the common ground between her and I and provided me with the foundation to produce this work. I am very honoured that I can perform the 7 Deaths of Maria Callas at the English National Opera in London which has such a long and rich history of incredible theatre. I always refer to her comment when she said When I perform I make sure that one part of my brain is in complete control and the other part is loose and free’.”
