By Francisco Salazar

Joseph Calleja has received the Order of Arts and Letters in France.

The tenor took to social media and said, “It was a privilege to receive the ‘Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres.’ My connection with France goes beyond opera thanks to Michael Tabone and our friends at Vins de Saint-Emilion. I would also like to thank Her Excellency Agnes Von der Muhll and her wonderful team! Ambassade de France à Malte Michael Tabone Atelier Michael Tabone Vins de Saint-Emilion.

Next up for the tenor is Bellini’s “Norma” at the Bayerische Staatsoper. This summer he will also perform in Romania, Croatia, and Melbourne. He returns to the Metropolitan Opera in March for performances of Puccini’s “La Bohème.”
