Only one lyric tenor on the scene today has the honeyed tone and ingratiating style to make comparisons to Pavarotti and Gigli seems serious, and it is Calleja, the man from Malta, who... is now maturing into an artist of the first rank." - New Yorker

Works by Giuseppe Verdi and Jules Massenet
In major opera houses on both sides of the Atlantic, Joseph Calleja is one the most requested tenor singers around. His voice inspires critics to often compare him to legendary singers of older times. In this program Calleja contrasts the works of the most popular French opera composer with those of the most influential Italian one: Jules Massenet, whose achievements include “Manon” and “Werther” and Giuseppe Verdi with arias from “Aida” and “Macbeth” among others.
