Onassis’ former yacht to host luxury opera cruises9:45, 12th February 2013
Christina O – the luxury yacht that Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis once used to entertain the world’s most famous and powerful celebrities – is to be used to host an exclusive series of Mediterranean opera cruises in Cannes between 13 and 29 May.
Named after Maria Callas, with whom Onassis conducted a notorious affair for nearly 10 years, each of the evening cruise packages will feature a live theatrical performance inspired by the life of the legendary soprano – including a selection of her signature arias sung by Nelly Miricioiu.
Bringing the glamorous lifestyle of the 1950’s and 60’s jet set to life, tickets for this unique project are priced at €250 per person.
