2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of Joseph Calleja’s public debut in the world of opera. To commemorate this occasion, NnG Promotions are proud to announce world renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli as special guest for the annual Joseph Calleja Concert.
Joseph Calleja’s debut came at the age of 19 as Macduff in Verdi’ Macbeth at the Aastra Theatre whilst studying under the tutelage of the late Mro. Paul Aciak. Shortly after he went on to win an award in the Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition which launched his international career. Calleja went on to win the 1998 Caruso Competition in Milan and was a prize winner in Plácido Domingo’s Operalia in 1999, the year of his U.S. debut at the Spoleto Festival. The last twenty years has seen Joseph Calleja go from strength to strength, receiving accolades wherever he has sung with his voice being compared to opera greats such as Jussi Björling, Beniamino Gigli, even Enrico Caruso. Calleja has appeared in most of the world’s great opera theatres, having sung an impressive 33 leading roles to date.
