Maltese tenor Cliff Zammit Stevens announces seventh annual summer concert

Cliff Zammit Stevens is a graduate of the Royal College of Music in London and, over the last couple of years, he has made a name for himself on the UK’s competitive operatic scene

Maltese tenor Cliff Zammit Stevens is set to return to Malta for his seventh, annual summer concert. Cliff Zammit Stevens Concert with MPO will take place on Friday 4 September at the Renzo Piano re-designed Pjazza Teatru Rjal in Valletta, and is set to be Cliff’s biggest event to date.

Renowned for his tenacious vocals, Cliff Zammit Stevens is a graduate of the Royal College of Music in London and, over the last couple of years, he has made a name for himself on the UK’s competitive operatic scene.

His first performance in PopUp Opera’s production of Donizetti’s 'Elisir d’Amore' stole the show, with The Daily Express calling his rendition ‘a revelation’, The Times commenting that he ‘blew [them] away with Nemorino’s duets and arias’, and the influential Opera Magazine sealing the deal by saying that he ‘shows exceptional promise’.

Now, Maltese-born Cliff is set to return to his home country to star in his seventh – and biggest – annual summer concert, where he will perform duets with guest soprano Hannah Sandison, the winner of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Governors Recital Prize for singing.

Backing Cliff will be the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra in one of their first performances of their new season. The MPO will perform under the baton of the Australian Mro Natalie Murray Beale, who is renowned for conducting the new opera commission 'We Are Shadows' at the Spitalfields Festival, which was the winner of a Royal Society Award in 2012.

“I couldn’t be more excited to return home for this performance,” says Cliff. “We have spent countless hours hand-picking the pieces to be sung, and the programme for the night will surely appeal to opera lovers of all ages.”

This year’s programme will last around two hours, and includes pieces composed by Puccini, Tchaikovsky, Monteverdi, Donizetti, Verdi, and Rodgers & Hammerstein, among others.

While in Malta, Cliff will also perform with the world-renowned tenor Joseph Calleja and global superstar Anastacia, during the Annual Maltese Summer Concert, at the Luxol Grounds in Pembroke on Monday 3 August.
