Now You See Her, Now You Don't
This coming September 9, legendary opera soprano Maria Callas will be giving a concert on stage at the Chicago Lyric Opera, performing some of her most famous arias written by Verdi, Puccini and others. She will be accompanied by the Chicago Lyric orchestra, under the baton of Elmar Noone. This is a really big deal because Madama Callas has not performed in Chicago in many decades.
I should also note that Maria Callas died on September 16, 1977.
But yes, it's still true. And bizarre. It's part of what is know as the Maria Callas Hologram Tour. The company BASE Hologram created the technology for this event. And it's both a bit creepy (needless-to-say) and absolutely remarkable. Needless-to-say.
Side note: I'm told that technically this is not precisely a hologram. Whatever it precisely is, it's still creepy and remarkable.)
Here's a sample video.
