Joseph Calleja – The Maltese Tenor


With Amelia Farrugia & Piers Lane


Joseph Calleja is one of the most exciting lyric tenors in the world today.


Blessed with a golden-age voice which routinely inspires comparisons to legendary singers from earlier eras, Calleja is now a superstar in all the greatest opera houses and concert halls.


His extensive discography includes a thrilling Verdi album and a hugely popular tribute to Mario Lanza, whilst his performance of Puccini’s famous Nessun dorma at The Last Night of the Proms at The Royal Albert Hall was nothing short of electrifying.


In this, his eagerly anticipated debut Australian tour, the Maltese born singer described as the young Pavarotti will be joined by two of Australia’s best-loved artists, soprano Amelia Farrugia, who is also of Maltese heritage, and internationally acclaimed pianist Piers Lane, in an unforgettable performance.


"His rock-solid yet ever-malleable voice and blazing stage presence could light a thousand lamps." - Independent
