After an acclaimed performance as part of Last Night of the 2012 BBC Proms, Joseph Calleja returns to London for two concerts as part of the 2013 Proms.
On September 5 at Royal Albert Hall, the Maltese tenor celebrates Verdi’s bicentennial with the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi in a concert that will air live on BBC 3 radio, be broadcast on BBC 4 television, and remain available for streaming on the BBC’s website. With conductor Xian Zhang, Joseph offers arias from Attila, I vespri siciliani, Simon Boccanegra, Luisa Miller, and Rigoletto. Orchestral works from La forza del destino, Aida, and La traviata are also included, as is Tchaikovsky’s Manfred.
Two days later on September 7, Joseph performs as part of a Last Night of the Proms concert at Hyde Park with Dame Edna Everage, violinist Nigel Kennedy, and special guest Bryan Ferry as well as the BBC Concert Orchestra and Richard Balcombe. While this Proms in the Park concert is sold out, it will also be broadcast on radio, television, and bbc.co.uk.
