Meryl Streep to Play Opera Legend Maria Callas

Was there ever any other choice? Oscar winner Meryl Streep who’s played every legendary role Margaret Thatcher, to Anna Wintour-like Devil Wears Prada — will play another legend in opera icon Maria Callas in a film version of Terrence McNally’s play Master Class for HBO.  Mike Nichols will direct the adaptation of the Tony-winning play about iconic diva Callas teaching students at Juilliard in 1971.

The question remains if Streep will be able to provide any of the classy singing that Callas was reknowned for, beyond just being an opera diva.

Filming is set to occur in January of the next year.
