Victor Micallef

Posted on May 13, 2015
Maltese-Canadian tenor Victor Micallef was born in Toronto and began his musical training on the piano at the age of four at the Royal Conservatory of Music. His singing career started as a young cantor at his local church and at the age of sixteen he began taking formal voice lessons. He later attended the University of Western Ontario and the University of Toronto to obtain his Bachelors Degree in Vocal Performance. In the fall of 1998 Victor moved to Florence, Italy, where he began studying with his mentor, tenor Franco Pagliazzi. While in Europe, Victor was featured both in opera and in concert with several companies including Il Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. He has also had the pleasure and honour of working with such world-renowned conductors as Zubin Mehta, Claudio Abbado, and Daniel Oren. In June 2004, Victor returned to Toronto after being accepted as a member of the Canadian Opera Company’s prestigious Ensemble Studio. For the following two years he performed and understudied among others, the role of Luke in the Canadian Premiere of Ruder’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the title role in Britten’s Albert Herring, Tamino in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, both Macduff and Malcolm in Verdi’s Macbeth, Rodolfo in Puccini’s la Bohéme, and Edgardo in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. Throughout his early career, Victor has performed for audiences and dignitaries in North America, Europe, and Asia. He has recorded as a soloist and in ensembles with Il Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino(Bocelli/Mehta), Il Coro di Ferrara, and with The Orpheus Choir. He has also been heard live on CBC’s Saturday Afternoon at the Opera in Canada, and RAI’s Prima della Prima in Italy.
