Toward the end of a career that blazed through international opera, Prima Donna Assoluta Maria Callas conducts a master class for aspiring singers. 'Soul' is what Callas the teacher is looking for as she cajoles, intimidates, seduces and shatters three untested young artists - "victims" as she calls them - to give the performance of their lives. She reveals along the way the toll of a life of accomplishment and pain, from her triumphs at La Scala, to her doomed love for Aristotle Onassis.
