Only one lyric tenor on the scene today has the honeyed tone and ingratiating style to make comparisons to Pavarotti and Gigli seem serious, and it is Calleja

Popular opera arias and Christmas songs including
Verdi, Puccini, Massenet and Gounod.


Blessed with a golden-age voice that routinely inspires comparisons to legendary singers from earlier eras, Maltese-born Joseph Calleja is one of the most acclaimed and sought-after tenors today. His expansive discography and frequent appearances on the world’s leading opera and concert stages prompted National Public Radio to hail him as “arguably today’s finest lyric tenor,” and led to his being voted Gramophone Magazine’s 2012 Artist of the Year.

The celebrated tenor makes a welcome return to the National Concert Hall to perform a programme of arias from the operas he has performed to acclaim at the great opera houses of the world, including Verdi’s Rigoletto and Macbeth; Puccini’s Tosca and La Bohème and Massenet’s Werther. Joined by leading Irish soprano Claudia Boyle and accompanied by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Proinnsías Ó Duinn, with a Christmas song or two as well, this opera gala will make the perfect start to the festive season.
