Joseph opens in Simon Boccanegra at the Vienna Staatsoper

27th September 2013

Tonight, Joseph returns to Vienna and the role of Gabriele Adorno in Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra at the Vienna Staatsoper, having previously sung the role in Austria’s capital this past spring in a concert with Thomas Hampson at the Konzerthaus—the recording for which was released internationally earlier this month and will be available in the United States on October 29.

Of his account of the role in April, Die Presse wrote, “There are not many tenors who can sing the role of Adorno as unpretentiously, tastefully, and free of bad habits as Joseph Calleja.” Running through October 4, this production at the Staatsoper reunites Calleja with Hampson under conductor Alain Altinoglu in a production directed by Peter Stone. Tamar Iveri also stars as Amelia.
