Los Angeles: Actress Meryl Streep will portray legendary opera singer Maria Callas in a new TV biopic.

The film for the HBO TV network is a big screen adaptation of the play “Master Class”, reports contactmusic.com.

The Tony Award-winning play was written by Terrence MCNally and opened on Broadway in 1995.

In the show, Callas reminisces about her life while teaching a class at the famous Juilliard School of performing arts in New York City.

The “Graduate” director Mike Nichols will helm the production, which will begin filming in January, next year.
