Joseph Calleja launches his November performances with a return to the Bayerische Staatsoper’s production of Rigoletto. The Maltese tenor can be heard as Verdi’s Duke of Mantova in Munich on the 8th, 11th, and 14th. The appearances continue a season of Verdi’s operatic roles for Joseph, which began with a return to the Metropolitan Opera to reprise Macduff in Macbeth and will continue with his role debut as Riccardo in Un ballo in maschera at the Royal Opera House next month.
For this revival of Rigoletto, Joseph stars opposite Ekaterina Siurina as Gilda and Franco Vassallo in the title role. Stefano Ranzani conducts a production originated by Árpád Schilling.
