Notes and Editorial Reviews

The greatest voices of a generation, the best-selling classical music of all time, the musical event of a lifetime.

They are the world's best known operatic tenors, each one a legend: the italian Luciano Pavarotti, revered as the world's greatest tenor, who in 1990 had jsut brought opera onto the football field with his No. 2 hit Nessum Dorma used as a World Cup theme; and two Spaniards: Placido Domingo with the finest dramatic stage presence of all tenors, and Jose Carreras of the incomparably honeyed, lyrical tenor voice - the ultimate trio.

The original CD & full length DVD are now being packaged together for the first time in this special 20th Anniversary Edition of The Original Three Tenors. This
Read more is a chance for a whole new generation to fall in love, either again, or for the first time, with this mesmerizing musical event.
