By David Salazar

PBS has announced that it will start broadcasting Diana Damrau and Joseph Calleja’s concert from the Met Opera in 2020 on August 6, 2021.

Additionally, the organization revealed that “Great Performances at the Met: Diana Damrau & Joseph Calleja in Concert” will be hitting the New York metro area on Sunday, August 8, 2021 at 12:30 p.m. on THIRTEEN.

The performance featured the soprano and tenor take on a wide range of repertory by such composers as Verdi, Bizet, Rossini and Puccini; Damrau took on the role of “Tosca,” one which she has yet to perform. The showcase took place in October 2020 and featured the dynamic duo alongside pianist Vicenzo Scalera, live from the Palace of Caserta.

This is the latest in the series to be broadcast. Other upcoming concert broadcasts will star Anna Netrebko, Sonya Yoncheva, Bryn Terfel, Angel Blue, and Joyce DiDonato, among others.
