Description: A stellar, but aging, coloratura diva faces her farewell performance with fear for a future without fame and glamour. The relief felt by her maid and manager that the prima donna’s temperament and “star complex” will now be at an end is short lived when the diva announces she will sing yet another “farewell” concert next week.
