On Tuesday evening, we attended a fine performance of the the Manhattan Theater Club's Broadway revival of "Master Class."
The 1995 play by Terrence McNally is a look of the legendary opera diva Maria Callas. The soprano is adeptly brought to life in the revival by the Emmy Award-winning actress Tyne Daly.

For this week's belated "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend," below is a clip of Callas singing the Puccini aria "O Mio Babbino Caro."
Bonus: Callas with a selection from "Carmen":
