Divina: A Perfectly Imperfect Cabaret Created by Regina Gibson
About This Show
With “O Mio Babbino Caro,” “Habenera,” and other selections from Maria Callas’ famous repertoire, this modern day cabaret shows how the resilient soprano from New York became world-famous as La Divina, and how one woman escapes the everyday uncovering her spirit and passion.
“Don’t talk to me about the rules, dear. Wherever I stay I make the goddamn rules.” – Maria Callas
