Monica Bellucci .. a star who was not affected by the curse of beauty

Nearing her fifties, Monica Bellucci stands on stage reminiscent of the world’s most famous soprano, Maria Callas.

Italian star Monica Bellucci will meet with the Turkish audience on December 14 and 15 to present the monodrama “Maria Callas”.

Monica took the stage for the first time in her life last September at the Aerodeon theater in Athens with this show.

Despite her stardom, which resulted from 30 years of work in cinema and fashion shows, the tension that appeared on her features caught the eye, but she quickly gained control and erected herself as Venus, the goddess of beauty in Greek mythology, in her transparent black dress at night in the Greek capital.

And I began reading the letters of the Greek opera legend Maria Callas, which Callas wrote herself and had not been published before, and amounted to 350 letters, compiled by the author and director of the French theater show Tom Wolfe over a period of 12 years.

Various roles

Monica felt that she was reading about that child who decided to collect the expenses of studying law, she knocked on the doors of fashion shows, and soon her star shined and she moved to Milan, to begin her career that varied between fashion and movie roles, and here he is taking a new theatrical path, Monica then felt that that journey was It deserves to be played without the slightest hesitation.

And here is Maria Callas, bringing her back to her with all her momentum and sorrows. Monica recalled her most important and prominent struggle. That beauty that opened the door to lights and fame for her is the same stubborn opponent under which film and media makers put her as a purely female symbol without the slightest attention to the actress.

The theater could only accommodate 450 spectators, and although the movie star was used to huge numbers in films and shows, she felt overwhelming ecstasy, and felt the majesty of that art. She regretted a little because she did not present plays, but the looks of fascination in the eyes of the audience caught her attention.

The first letters referred her to the struggling girl who was the only one of her parents, who was born on September 30, 1964 in a small town. The money needed for school expenses, so she found the opportunity to work in modeling and moved to Milan.

Monica realized that there was a parallel relationship between her and her roles in the cinema. The similarity between the fates of the heroines who performed their roles and her personal fate almost indicated that she was the author of those roles, but the films seemed to be a shadow of a life full of artistic successes and personal sorrows.
