Aria - The Opera Albumby Andrea Bocelli
Mega-tenor Andrea Bocelli gets into a classical mood with this collection of beloved arias by Verdi, Puccini, and other operatic composers. The warmth of his voice and his potent emotionality will hypnotize the singer's many fans. This recital might also be a blueprint for a future career in opera houses. Bocelli is already committed to singing the title role of Massenet's "Werther" onstage. His ardent "Flower Song" from "Carmen" suggests another possible role. Bocelli's occasional musical inaccuracies seem like entirely forgivable flaws. Clearly Bocelli accepts neither fear nor personal limits, and this courage is blazoned on his voice.

Andrea Bocelli has done it again on this wonderful recording. Most of the arias are in Italian, but at the end he does have three in French. All are sublime. This Tenore seems to make no errors; and he gets better with every CD he does. On ''Aria'', the selections are lovely: even the saddest and most spirited, when interpreted by him, are nothing less than perfectly rendered: loosen the nerves, speak to the soul, and should satisfy even the most sceptical brain.
I love the selection of music on this album. My particular favorite is "Pourquoi me reveiller" from Werther by Jules Massenet.
This is so cute, even though I don't listen to Andrea's classical albums as much as I did 'Romanza.' Love that sexy picture, though...
