‘Prometheus 2’ Actress Noomi Rapace To Star In Upcoming Maria Callas Biopic.

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) will star in the biopic of the diva Maria Callas. The film, directed by Niki Caro (North Country), has been one of the projects presented by Media Content in the first day of the 68th Cannes Film Festival.

The film, based on the biography of Callas ‘Too Proud, Too Fragile’ written by Alfonso Signorini, shows the passionate relationship that had famous opera singer with the Greek shipping industry magnate, Aristotle Onassis (15 January 1906 – 15 March 1975), for over twenty years.

“This movie is about an extraordinary woman whose deepest desire is to lead an ordinary life with the man of her choice,” said the film’s producer.

Maria Callas (Manhattan NY, December 2, 1923 – Paris, September 16, 1977) was known for her wide vocal range and intensely dramatic portrayals in operas including Tosca, Die Walkure and Turandot. Her fans called her “La Divina” (the divine one).

The production of the film will be in charge of three major companies: the Italian group De Angelis, Belladonna Productions (New York) and the English Ealing Studios and Londinium Films.

Actress Noomi Rapace previously starred in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus, and Prometheus 2.

The film’s makers will be looking for distributors at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Their movie faces competition from an HBO biopic, announced last year, in which Meryl Streep will play the singer.

“An opera begins long before the curtain goes up and ends long after it has come down. It starts in my imagination, it becomes my life, and it stays part of my life long after I’ve left the opera house.” Opera singer Maria Callas.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
