Plácido Domingo to be the special guest at Maltese tenor, Joseph Calleja’s 25th Anniversary Concert
Acknowledged as one of the world’s finest singers, Domingo has almost reached 4,100 performances in a stellar career that has made him a household name both as a tenor and a conductor. Calleja, who has just completed the recording of his sixth album for Decca Records on the back of a critically acclaimed run in New York, said:
“The Maestro needs no introduction. His talent, stamina and love for the opera world are revered the world over and what I can promise is that this will be a concert to remember. Placido and I have sung together abroad, but to perform with him in my homeland is a dream come true.”
The fitting venue for this spectacular concert, which will also feature the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, was originally built by the Knights in 1723 to defend Valletta under the patronage of Portuguese Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena. The building has since undergone meticulous restoration.
