Overview

The world's three most famous operatic tenors -- Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti -- met in Vienna for a special Christmas-themed concert, and this DVD features highlights from their holiday show. The images have been presented in their original full-frame format, and listeners have a choice of two audio formats: Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Digital Stereo. The DVD edition of this release features little bonus material -- short biographies and selected discographies for the three featured performers -- but the superior sound quality of the DVD format, as well as the ease of cuing up individual selections, will doubtless make this a preferred purchase over the VHS edition of this concert for the discerning consumer.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Eddy Crouse
The Rat Pack for the longhaired set -- Jose Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti -- have done it again for the holidays, giving opera fans everywhere a reason to cheer. Originally joining forces in Rome in 1990 to support Carreras's comeback concert after his bout with leukemia, the Tenors this year embarked on a world tour to consolidate their position as the standard bearers for classical music and vocal virtuosity. This Christmas tape finds them in peak form, tackling a surprising breadth of material, from the spiritual ("Cantique de Noel") to the secular traditional ("White Christmas") to the downright weird (a surprisingly resonant, full-choir effort at John Lennon's "Happy Christmas/ War Is Over"). With the Vienna Symphony and the Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen Children's Choir backing them up, the Three Tenors soar ever higher.
