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

Joseph Calleja is one of the most exciting lyric tenors in the world today.
Blessed with a golden-age voice which routinely inspires comparisons to legendary singers from earlier eras, Calleja is now a star at all the world’s greatest opera houses and concert halls.
His extensive discography includes a thrilling Verdi album and a hugely popular tribute to Mario Lanza, whilst his performance of Puccini’s famous Nessun dorma at The Last Night of the Proms at The Royal Albert Hall was nothing short of electrifying.
In this, his eagerly anticipated debut Australian tour, the Maltese born singer described as the young Pavarotti will be joined by two of Australia’s best-loved artists, soprano Amelia Farrugia, who is also of Maltese heritage, and internationally acclaimed pianist Piers Lane, in an unforgettable performance.
