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 superstar in all the 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.
