“It's rare these days to find an opera singer with such an individual sound that you can identify him or her in just a couple notes. Tenor Joseph Calleja, from the tiny island of Malta, is just such a singer. You can hear the golden Mediterranean sunshine in his voice, and I love his old-fashioned fast vibrato, which flickers like a vintage silent movie. Calleja…is arguably today's finest lyric tenor…” — NPR

2014 and the New Year

2014 went by like a breeze. It was not always easy, especially with the challenge of finishing my new home whilst juggling a very heavy schedule. However, all’s well that ends well and in 2015 I look forward to reverting my full focus on this beautiful profession and vocation whilst enjoying the company of my loved ones especially my children. The latter turning fast into healthy and considerate young adults.

2015 couldn’t have started in a worse way. The atrocious, barbaric and senseless killing in Paris shocked the world. Watching a police officer being  shot in the head, at point blank range, in day light Paris was as horrific as it was surreal. I certainly hope that the general and unanimous outcry will gain even more momentum so that our leaders will take the necessary steps to protect our European values without compromise. Make no mistake – these fanatics won’t stop at anything; bombing and shooting at places of entertainment, including Opera houses and Concert Halls, will be next…

Fanatics and extremists of whatever religion or denomination have to be hunted down, prosecuted and incarcerated or deported. If the laws have to be changed to make this process easier and more effective then so be it.


Remember that evil only triumphs when the good do nothing. And talking about good here is an exemplary Muslim taking the correct stand –
