WORLD RENOWNED MEGA SUPERSTARS OF OPERA
Supported by the Embassy of Ireland

Tuesday, November 30, 7:00 pm

Conductor: Konstantin Chudovsky
Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra

Duration
Part I: 44 minutes
Part II: 38 minutes
Intermission 20 mins

Two superstars of the opera world—Tenor Joseph Calleja, Gramophone magazine’s 2012 Artist of the Year and a Grammy-nominated recording artist for Decca Classics, and Soprano Celine Byrne, a performer of ‘fine lyrical quality and a touching actor’ (Opera Magazine)—come together for a musical event of a lifetime with award-winning conductor Konstantin Chudovsky.

Recognized internationally as one of opera’s greatest stars today, Irish soprano Celine Byrne has performed extensively throughout the world including for Pope Francis. Having duetted with several of the opera world’s most famous tenors, she is rightly described as “a performer of fine lyrical quality and a touching actor.”

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 2012 Artist of the Year. A Grammy-nominated recording artist for Decca Classics, he has released five solo albums for the label.
