On February 1 and 6, Joseph Calleja returns to the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin for two performances as Edgardo in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. The Maltese tenor, who has previously appeared in Filippo Sanjust’s production, stars opposite Pretty Yende in the title role and Simone Piazzola as Enrico. Ivan Repusic conducts.
Praised by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung for an interpretation of Edgardo in which “every melisma is a declaration of love and every chest tone conjures up the inevitability of impending tragedy,” Joseph also sings Edgardo later this season at the Metropolitan Opera.
