The final Royal Opera House performances of John Copley’s iconic production of La Bohème will see house favorite Joseph Calleja in the role of Rodolfo. The Maltese tenor joins Anna Netrebko as Mimì under the baton of Dan Ettinger.
Opened in 1974 and counted as the longest-running production in the ROH’s history, La Bohème opens May 23 and is feted with a post-performance celebration. June 10 marks another milestone when the performance is broadcast around the world as part of the Royal Opera’s live cinema relay series. Joseph gives five other performances as Rodolfo May 30, June 2, 5, and 8.

Spring highlights for Joseph Calleja include La Bohème in London, gala concerts in Bratislava, Paris, and Amsterdam
Joseph Calleja’s landmark winter, which included an acclaimed U.S. recital debut and an equally well-received return to the Metropolitan Opera for Lucia di Lammermoor, is turning towards a spring with equally auspicious engagements that see the Maltese tenor back in Europe. At the Royal Opera House, Joseph sings opposite Anna Netrebko in a revival of Puccini’s La Bohème, the company’s final performances of John Copley’s iconic production — the longest-running production in ROH’s history. La Bohème opens May 23 to a post-performance celebration of the production and continues through June 10, which is also the date for the performance’s live cinecast around the world.
Looking ahead to the summer, Joseph’s concert and opera schedule continues with performances in Berlin, Orange, Munich, and Hannover, culminating with his annual Maltese Summer Concert on August 3 at Luxol in Pembroke, Malta. Platinum recording artist Anastacia joins for the event, with additional guest artists to be announced.
