On July 13, Joseph Calleja returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper for an encore performance of Madama Butterfly, featuring the Maltese tenor as B.F. Pinkerton. A regular presence on the Munich opera stage, Joseph has also earned further applause from audiences and critics in recent years for his account of Puccini’s caddish antihero.
Joseph reunites with Kristine Opolais in the title role with conductor Daniele Callegari leading the performance, set against the backdrop of Wolf Busse’s production. Joseph returns to the production in September for three more performances before opening Staatsoper’s new production of Boito’s Mefistofele in October.
