From Barcelona's magnificent Palau Sant Jordi comes this thrilling DVD concert: six international opera stars sing well-loved arias of great composers from Verdi to Rossini to Donizetti. Alfredo Kraus, Renata Scotto, Gail Gilmore, Melanie Holliday, Paolo Coni, and Ramon Vargas - some of the greatest opera singers of our time - get beautiful support from the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra, with Konrad Leitner conducting. Each singer is featured as a soloist, performing music appropriate to his or her own gifts and skills. And the finale features all in a charming ensemble from La Traviata.
