Ari – Maria
While most love affairs involve secret meetings, furtive glances, and encrypted telephone calls, the one between Maria Callas and Aristotle Socrates Onassis would become internationally known. After meeting at a Venetian party in 1957, the acclaimed Greek opera singer and enormously wealthy Greek shipping magnate would fall in love despite their spouses, and play their turbulent relationship out on the public stage for more than a decade to follow. Lauded by Oregon Live for its “evocative score,” the joy and drama enlivens a different sort of stage in Ari – Maria. As Maria Calla, Amy Jo Halliday lends her vocal gusto to timeless pieces by Puccini and Bellini, complementing an original book by Donald L. Horn and music by Jonathan Quesenberry. Bruce Blanchard, meanwhile, portrays the wandering Onassis, and, in the spirit of a Greek tragedy, a narrating figure named “Friend” sets the context behind the simple staging.
Going on a quarter-century in business, Triangle Productions forges into the future under the leadership of founder and executive producer Don Horn. The Sanctuary, meanwhile, lends its spacious, 200-seat auditorium as the troupe's home venue. Outside, an ample parking lot ensures attendees won't have trouble finding a space in which to reenact their favorite scenes after the show.
