Joseph Calleja is one of the most successful concert artists of the twenty-first century. Thanks to a honeyed tone that inspires comparisons to legendary Italian opera singers, his performances have earned him the moniker “the new Pavarotti”.

Event is part of the festival Winter Ljubljana Festival

His operatic repertoire extends from French opera to the great lyric tenor and verismo roles. At the 5th Winter Festival we have the opportunity to hear him with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra under the Italian conductor Gianluca Marcianò.
