Jessica Lange and Maria Tucci will join previously announced stars Kathy Bates, Dixie Carter, Edie Falco, and Leslie Uggams -- all of whom will share the role of opera diva Maria Callas -- in the Metropolitan Opera Guild's benefit performance Terrence McNally's Master Class at 7pm on Monday, June 19 at the Broadhurst Theatre. The actresses replace Swoosie Kurtz and Chita Rivera, who had to bow out for personal reasons.

The performance, to be directed by Leonard Foglia, will be followed by a gala cast supper at the Marriot Marquis Hotel. The show will also feature original Broadway cast members Jay Hunter Morris and David Loud, as well as Broadway veterans Sherry Boone and Donna Lynne Champlin. McNally and Zoe Caldwell, who originated the role of Callas on Broadway, will be the evening's guests of honor.

Tickets range in price from $85 to $1,000, with the proceeds to benefit the Guild's education programs. For more information, call 212-769-7009 or visit
