There’s one time-tested way of giving males the ability to sing those high notes:

Of course the procedure has to be done before puberty.

As has been noted, high-pitched male voices did and do exist in classical European music.

Years ago I heard an opera or oratorio with a duet between a female soprano and a male soprano, and of course now i cant recall the durned title. Maybe the composer was Handel? That time frame, anyway. It was quite interesting to hear, of course.

Thanks to youtube you can compare a male soprano and female soprano (though of course no two voices of any range or gender are alike), singing ahumdinger aria such as “Lascia Ch’io Pianga”:
