The Maltese tenor joins what the New York Times styled “a dream team of opera singers” that also includes Ildar Abdrazakov, Anna Netrebko, Angela Meade, Stephen Costello, Isabel Leonard, and 2014 Richard Tucker Award Winner Michael Fabiano.
Emmanuel Villaume conducts the concert, which will be recorded for later broadcast on Live From Lincoln Center on PBS. Click here for ticket information.

Audiences worldwide can watch Joseph Calleja live from the Metropolitan Opera in Verdi’s Macbeth this Saturday, October 11. The simulcast, which opens the Met’s acclaimed HD season and will be shown in cinemas around the globe, features the Maltese tenor in the role of Macduff opposite Zeljko Lucic in the title role, Anna Netrebko as Lady Macbeth, and René Pape as Banquo. Fabio Luisi conducts.
The Met’s current revival of Adrian Noble’s production has been praised by the New York Observer as “worthy of the Met’s status as the greatest opera house in the world.” The Observer reserved special acclaim for Joseph, noting that his “throbbing performance of Macduff’s lament for his slain children was a highlight, elevating his character to a credible adversary to Macbeth.”
