Great Personality---Great Singing!
John Boland | USA | 07/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD or tape was taken off Japanese Television. It has "technical defects" like mediocre to average sound quality and video "noise". But, here in this DVD we have quite a few songs and arias sung live in a concert hall in front of an appreciative Japanese audience...35 years ago when Corelli was in his prime and not deceased! How much is such a recorded concert worth to those people who appreciate the work of a great artist like Franco Corelli? It's almost priceless! Should you buy this DVD? Yes...yes...and yes again...! When Franco looks up into the TV Camera and seemingly smiles "at you" with that quizzical smile of his, your heart will melt and you will be glad you purchased this! Email:boland7214@aol."
OMG!!! What a hunk!!!

"What a powerful, gorgeous voice! What fabulous good looks!!

This is a "stand and sing" concert to a very enthusiastic Japanese audience. Every piece begins and ends with a well deserved, thunderous applause.

Corelli is wearing a tuxedo with tails, not the Western getup pictured on the DVD cover. I think that was a very poor choice. The picture quality of my DVD is poor but the sound is very good. The song titles are provided in English but there are no subtitles.

What was I doing in 1971 that I missed Franco Corelli??? Had I heard him then, I'm sure I would have been an opera lover from then on!"
See why Corelli was the Greatest!!!

"I was a Corelli fanatic since 1960 when I saw the Tosca movie. Even as a teen I just knew it didn't get better than this. I saw Franco live in several operas before this concert which I snapped up on tape as a pirate probably 30 some years ago. Here we get the added intimacy with the audience and you get a feeling for what a gracious character this man was. These are polite Japanese and they are screaming like Italians. Just the piano intros to the encores set them off.

Did I mention he's gorgeous to look at too."
