Blessed with a golden-age voice that inspires comparisons to legends such as Jussi Björling, Beniamino Gigli, and even Enrico Caruso, Maltese-born Joseph Calleja has quickly become one of today’s most acclaimed tenors and is constantly in demand at the world’s leading opera houses in New York, Vienna, Berlin and London.
