Joseph Calleja

Blessed with a golden-age voice that routinely inspires comparisons to legendary singers from earlier eras: Jussi Björling, Beniamino Gigli, even Enrico Caruso, Maltese-born Joseph Calleja has quickly become one of the most acclaimed and sought-after tenors today.

His expansive discography and frequent appearances on the world’s leading opera and concert stages prompted NPR to hail him as arguably today’s finest lyric tenor, and led to his being voted Gramophone magazine’s 2012 Artist of the Year.

Joseph Calleja kicks off the 2022/23 season returning to the Opéra National de Paris, where he sings Caravadossi in Tosca and later Don José in Carmen. Calleja’s signature role of Caravadossi also brings him to Barcelona, where the tenor celebrates his house debut at the Gran Teatre del Liceu (conductor: Henrik Nanasi), and to the Deutsche Oper in Berlin (conductor: Sir Donald Runnicles).

Besides that, Calleja sings Alfredo in La Traviata at the Bayerische Staatsoper. The tenor further follows the invitation to the Bayreuther Festspiele, where he performs Wagner’s last work Parsifal – a role debut for Calleja. Among other highlights of the season is Calleja’s Australia and New Zealand tour as well as his tour in Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.
