What a wonderful concert...

"This is a really good DVD. It was taped during the 1990 World Cup, and in my view it is far superior to the Three Tenors Concert taped a couple of months later in Rome. Those who have read my previous reviews will probably realise that I am a complete unashamedly Pavarotti addict - and this will please all his millions of fans around the globe.All his standard repertoire pieces are here, including an excellent "Pourquoi me reveiller" and a quite electrifying "Vesti la guibba". The encores are outstanding, and the whole programme has been put together thoughtfully. It is a shame that he couldn't have been persauded to sing "Ch'ella mi creda" or "Che gelida manina", or dare I say, a little bit more Verdi?Anyway, this is Big Lucy at his best - and the audience love it, as will you if you invest in this DVD. When it arrived, we all settled down to watch it with a glass of wine after dinner one Saturday night. You know, my mother in law insisted that I order her a copy from immediately. Which I duly did. Is there a better recommendation that that?"

"An excellent selection of arias; Wonderfully performed by the great Pavarotti. This is a must-have for any Pavarotti fan, and any fan of opera and wonderful singing."
Sounds great, looks great.

"This was taped the same year as the Three Tenors performed, also celebarting the same occassion. Luciano sounds fresh and healthy.Here he sings Puccini, Donizetti, and Neapolotan songs. Dare I say, I have some complaining to do. Could Pavarotti survive if he sung much more Verdi? (Di quella pira, Quest o quella, or La donna e mobile) And also, perhaps, some Rossini? (Ecco rident in cielo, or something from William Tell) The conductor, Leone Magiera, was not the greatest choice ever made. Why not Zubin Mehta or James Levine?Anyhow, here is La Grande Tenor at his best. Enjoy!"
