CRITIC REVIEWS:

“The tenor Joseph Calleja, who sang Gabriele Adorno [in SIMON BOCCANEGRA], the nobleman who falls for Amelia, is one of the most abundantly gifted tenors of the current generation. His voice has melting warmth and carrying power.”

- Anthony Tommasini, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 3 April, 2016



“[Calleja] is capable of offering a steady stream of fine tone in a true legato line and with a wide range of dynamics, including a working pianissimo and a messa di voce. This is a method and a style that would have been acceptable and applauded in the opera world of a century ago....Of the five current, ranking, international tenors, it may not be going too far to forecast that the 28-year-old Calleja alone stands on course for a long and distinguished career.”

- Vivian A. Liff, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, July/Aug., 2005
