Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If music be the food of love, then Under the Desert Sky is an Italian feast. Andrea Bocelli performs live at the Lake Las Vegas resort for this DVD and bonus CD, featuring some of the world's greatest love songs. In straying from the largely classical repertoire that helped shoot Bocelli to stardom, he is able to take more contemporary material and give it the sheen of timelessness. Most of the selections are in Italian, Spanish, or French--Romance languages, naturally. Highlights include the swoon-inducing "Amapole," the pitch-perfect "Canzoni Stonate," and even a reverent "Can't Help Falling in Love." Through it all, Bocelli's relaxed, self-effacing manner and confident delivery make for an intimate concert experience. Bocelli is also backed by a terrific group of talented musicians, including pianist and executive producer David Foster. A real show-stopper: Bocelli's duet with the Tony-winning Aida singer Heather Headley; the blending of their voices suggests the duets of Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt at their most sublime. There's only one real clunker: "Besame Mucho," which is so innately cheeseball that trying to deliver it sincerely only makes it more cheesy. Included is a CD with nine tracks, including a different version of "Can't Help Falling in Love," with a duet by American Idol's Katherine McPhee, and a soulful "Canzoni Stonate" with Stevie Wonder. DVD extras include interviews with Bocelli, Foster, and others (be sure to turn on your subtitles manually if you're not an Italian speaker). That's amore! --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Performed on a specially constructed floating stage in Lake Las Vegas, a resort community 20 miles south of Las Vegas, this historic performance captures Andrea Bocelli's first ever pop concert. Under the Desert Sky, which co-stars Tony® winner Heather Headley (Elton John's Aida), represents a new era for the Tuscan-born singer. Spanish guitars flourish, traditional Latin percussion seductively keeps the tempo, accordions and harmonicas provide haunting ambience. Highlights include "Somos Novios" - Perry Como had a hit with it as "It's Impossible" - and "The Prayer," a duet with Heather Headley, David Foster and Carole Bayer Sager's Oscar® nominated song from Quest for Camelot. Capping the program is a new song, "Because We Believe," by David Foster with lyrics by Andrea Bocelli and Amy Foster Gillies which was written for and introduced at the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful DVD CD Set!!!!!!! November 9, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A voice like Andrea Bocelli's only comes along every generation or so, (if that) Caruso, Lanza, Pavarotti and Now Bocelli; They are my big 4. Not only does Bocelli have wonderful opera skills, but also tremendous pop singing skills, as well. As for classical singing; Bocelli's breath control is amazing; no one holds high, mid, and low notes (sang either intensely or softly) as long as Bocelli does. His diction is excellent; His tone is wonderful; His color is right in sink to the song being performed, dark or light, and all shads around those as needed. He has that tenor ring that can rise up over an orchestra, he sings just beautifully. As for his pop singing again it's spectacular; Bocelli can sing a pop song either in a classical way, or a bluesy way or almost anyway. He has tremendous versatility, I would rank him right at the top of pop singing for all time. Bocelli can sing big, bold, intense and beautiful, or can show us a soft side it seems like he is singing in one's ear, very sweetly and beautiful.

Under The Desert Sky: Is a wonderful DVD/CD Set, . Bocelli's singing hear is Romantic, Passionate, filled with Emotion and his voice will go right into your soul and provide you with delight. Bocelli has a certain vulnerability (for lake of a better word) in his voice (when he sings pop) that can fill you with peace. He is just amazing. the DVD is wonderfully done in a beautiful setting of Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada. You will watch it over and over again. The CD is a nice bonus, it gives you songs not on the Amore cd.

hear is my song by song review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance from Las Vegas February 4, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Doesn't surpass the Night in Tuscany concert dvd, but there's a lot of good here. The ever-bubbling debate about Bocelli as classical singer or not goes on. Truth is, he not only sings operatic arias beautifully (if not always traditionally), but his voice opens into new vistas with classical music. Some people dont know that before he hit the American music scene, Bocelli's big success in Italy came as a singer of Italian/European pop music, not opera. Bocelli has princely taste in musical selections, and in this concert manages to overcome Foster's fountains-of-lasagna musical arrangements with sensational singing, and an invigorating personality. He includes 'The Prayer' - this time with Heather Headley. No classical arias are included. Fan or not, there's little here to disappoint. A Night in Tuscany offers more variety, and more muscular singing by Bocelli, but this concert's designed for romance and it delivers the goods.

4.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking April 2, 2008
Format:DVD
Bocelli does not disappoint with this presentation of romantic music in a magnificent setting. The dynamic of the location and the setting of the sun during the show (and resulting images) is beautiful. Surprising guest performers compliment his own performance. You can't miss with David Foster either! There is a surprise effect during one selection that is powerful and evokes an emotional response to the music. We watch this video over and over - it IS that good! Don't expect opera as you will be disappointed .... this is pure magical romantic music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under the Desert Sky December 16, 2007
By VAM
Format:DVD
This is a phenomenal DVD!! I have the CD & DVD and they are both awesome.
I just returned from Phoenix, AZ seeing Andrea live....he gave a fabulous concert. Would have rather had less opera and more of his contemporory music, but his voice is wonderful no matter what he is singing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Night Of Beautiful Serenade February 22, 2007
Format:DVD
Upon my word, this DVD is one of the best buys I have made to date, and I am proud to have it in my collection. But this is not due to the fact that I am a big Bocelli fan, but rather because in "Under the Desert Sky," Andrea Bocelli has perfectly pulled it off once again. And, what a night it had been, as two of the greatest artists of our time collaborated to give us a romantic evening of serenading beside Lake Las Vegas. Kudos to David Foster and Andrea Bocelli!! The ironic thing about it all is the lack of a big stage and a huge audience: everything was done modestly. It was as if Mr Bocelli suddenly appeared in that place and gave a concert on the spot. It is my hunch that the stage was probably set-up three days beforehand but that nobody knew who was coming.

And yet, even with all the simplicity of this outdoor venue, one cannot help but fall in love with the backdrop where the concert was held. Behind the stage is Lake Las Vegas with a bridge that looks like the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Speaking of Florence, isn't that in Tuscany where Andrea Bocelli hails from? David Foster could not have picked a better place to hold Mr. Bocelli's first-ever pop concert.

As we all know, Mr. Bocelli is no stranger to concerts. But when it comes to concerts entirely his own, this is his first ever departure from the classical arena into pop, something of which, in my opinion, inevitably will happen sooner or later. And happen it did, what a glorious night. Everything is perfect, from the cheery and romantic evening atmosphere, to the orchestra and the selected songs, and right up to the chemistry between Mr. Foster and Mr. Bocelli.
