Notes and Editorial Reviews

A singer's voice is not simply a sound he or she happens to make, but a reflection of the singer's life. An understanding of who a singer is can only increase one's understanding of their art. That is the starting point for this biographical documentary in which the roots of the greatest tenors who have ever lived are discovered: Enrico Caruso, Benjamino Gigli, and Jussi Bjoerling. Filmed entirely on location in Italy, Sweden, and London, this program contains extensive archival footage of all three singers, taken from newsreels, feature films and concerts; extensive examples of their singing; and interviews with people who knew and worked with them, some of whom have never spoken before on camera. By the end of this absorbing documentary - Read more hosted by the internationally renowned tenor, Nigel Douglas - one knows not only something of their lives, but why these three tenors are legendary singers.
