This was the inauguration of the Maria Callas Academy of Fine Arts to honour the great artist for her contribution to the lyric theatre, but also to establish an Academy in the building on 61 Patision Street, where she lived as a teenager and in which talented young artists, dedicated to serving the lyric art, will study.
The establishment of the Maria Callas Academy of Fine Arts will be a reference point in the arts, both in Greece and abroad.
