The English National Opera Orchestra with Tenor Joseph Calleja

Thursday, June 27, 2024 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Conductor: Richard Farnes

Recondita Armonia – a night at the opera

FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY

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, the man from Malta… an artist of the first rank. New Yorker

Blessed with a golden-age voice that routinely inspires comparisons to “legendary singers from earlier eras: Jussi Björling, Beniamino Gigli, even Enrico Caruso” [Associated Press], Maltese-born Joseph Calleja has quickly become 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 NPR to hail him as “arguably today’s finest lyric tenor,” and led to his being voted Gramophone magazine’s Artist of the Year.  A Grammy-nominated recording artist for Decca Classics, he has released five solo albums for the label.

The award-winning and much-loved ENO Orchestra is renowned for the versatility of its repertoire spanning more than four centuries, providing the musical landscape and emotion for all ENO productions.  Equally at home in the fun and sparkle of Gilbert and Sullivan as it is in Wagner’s epic scores, it also brings to life the complexities and colours of contemporary operas, as well as musical theatre productions.

From Verdi and Puccini, to Bizet and Lehár, together with a few surprises, we look forward to welcoming you to a performance that will surely melt everyone’s heart, featuring some of Calleja’s favourite arias and songs, alongside exhilarating orchestral works.

The festival is proud to have established this exciting new partnership with the ENO.
