A pantomime performance by the Malta Amateur Dramatic Club (MADC) was the scene of a stellar cameo earlier this week when tenor Joseph Calleja took to the stage to serenade one of the main characters.
The MADC's production of RapunzelStiltskin was in full flow last Wednesday when the popular tenor appeared with a microphone at the side of the stage saying, "This is totally unscripted."
After taking the pantomime dame's hand and going down on one knee, he gave an impassioned performance of the Elvis Presley classic 'Can't Help Falling In Love' to a packed and surprised audience.
It's not the first time the tenor has performed in an unexpected location - last year he was seen singing on an Air Malta flight as part of an advertising campaign.
