About Joseph Calleja

Maltese-born tenor Joseph Calleja has become one of the most highly acclaimed tenors in the world with an outstanding back catalogue. His exceptional voice regularly draws comparisons to some of the world’s best singers from history; Pavarotti, Gigli and Caruso.  
The Maltese tenor, who made his operatic debut aged just 19 in Verdi’s ‘Macbeth’ at the Astra Theatre in Gozo has since come a long way, performing to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in a private concert, as well as having won several awards including Gramophone’s Artist of the Year award in 2012.  

On top of this, Calleja has travelled the world and performed in some of the most stunning opera houses around the world including the Royal Opera House in London, the Vienna State Opera, the Teatro Real in Madrid and the Opéra national du Rhin in Strasbourg, to name just a few! Not just well-known in Europe, Calleja has also been highly successful on the other side of the Atlantic. He has performed in the prestigious Metropolitan Opera in New York, as well as in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Washington.

Each year, Joseph Calleja invites a special international guest on stage to perform with him.  In previous years, artists have included Anastasia, Michael Bolton, Ronan Keating, Lucio Dalla, Zucchero and Rebecca Ferguson, amongst others.  This year’s special guest will be legendary Italian singer-songwriter and record producer Andrea Bocelli, who is the first to make a return to the stage with Calleja. 

The memorable night will be held in front of the stunning St. Publius Church, at the Granaries in Floriana. As the sun goes down, an ethereal glow will transcend across the masses illuminating the square, making for a truly unique atmosphere.
