Editorial Reviews

If you were one of the handful of folks who missed Céline Dion's mega-run in Las Vegas, fear not: Céline Dion: A New Day is a riveting, sumptuous front-row seat to the whole extravagant experience. As concert DVDs go, this is a show of a lifetime, nearly six hours featuring not only no-expenses-spared production values and every song from Dion's famed show, but priceless extras as well. Dion's substantial voice is in fine form, and sparkles on signature tunes like "A New Day Has Come," "The Power of Love," and of course the theme from Titanic, "My Heart Will Go On" (and Dion-watchers will note that she's thankfully dialed back the breast-beating that used to accompany this song).

But as impressive as the performances are--and they include the talented gymnasts, dancers, and backup singers who work as a Cirque du Soleil-style ensemble--the set's most memorable moments are found in the personal footage and extras. Dion comes across as truly humble and approachable, with a wicked sense of humor and real compassion for her hard-working staff and her fans. There are sweet, intimate moments of Dion with her husband and son, as well as telling scenes that show her true resourcefulness (girlfriend does her own makeup!). The many docs include one on the building of her special theater and the building of the show from the ground up. "If you're going to gamble," says Dion's manager and husband, René Angélil, "Vegas is the place to do it." Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect.. January 5, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That Celine Dion is one of the most generous and sincere artists in music today is pretty well-known. While she has taken a beating from the media and from detractors for being over-the-top in some of her vocals, a bit too dorky in her performances and in interviews, she has remained (sans the chest-beating) true to herself and to the music and fans that made her famous.

This DVD set is not only for those who saw the show and want a copy of it to remember, or for those who didn't get to see it and wanted to, but it really feels first and foremost like a gift to her die-hard fans. Most others wouldn't care for the extended amount of footage (over 3 hours worth) dedicated to the trivia about the show, its creation, execution and evolution over the past four years.

I did see the show twice in 2003, and feel that the DVD does a wonderful job of recreating the experience, but if you didn't get to Vegas and sit in the theater that was specifically built for this show, it's not the same.

A couple of other differences for those who saw the show: Nature Boy was omitted as the opening and swapped out for the more appropriate "A New Day Has Come" .. I always thought it was odd that the title song from the show was not sung back in 2003. Also removed is the tacky and ill-fitting cover of "Fever", but added in are "Love Can Move Mountains" (one of my favorites of hers of all time) and "River Deep, Mountain High" in full Tina Turner Tribute mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A Vocal and Visual Extravaganza December 14, 2007
Format:DVD
I saw this concert in Las Vegas in September, 2007 and enjoyed watching this DVD just as much as, if not more than, watching the live concert itself. This DVD comes very close to replicating both the visual and audio impact of the actual concert.

Celine Dion gives a super performance, but the concert is much more than just the vocals - - the songs are woven into an elaborate Las Vegas style stage production. The concert venue, the Coliseum at Caesar's Palace, was built specifically for this show, which opened in 2003 and closed in December, 2007. The arena has 4,000 seats placed in a semi circle around an immense stage. The seats are positioned so that no seat is more than 120 feet from the stage.

The stage production was arranged by Franco Dragone, a Belgian film and theater director. Before "A New Day," he directed the Las Vegas Cirque De Soleil productions of "Mystere" and "O." It is therefore not surprising that dancers perform during virtually every song. The troupe has about 60 dancers, but they rarely all appear on stage at the same time. The dancing is accompanied by magnificent stage effects, which feature, among other things, a tree sprouting from the stage; dancers gently dropping from the rafters on swings and other props; a man riding a bicycle into the sky (much as ET did in the movie); dancers floating above the stage in large picture frames; floating dancers pushing floating street lights; and, last but not least, a grand piano complete with a piano player floating above the stage floor. This DVD does an excellent job of capturing both the dancing and elaborate staging, while not compromising the video of Celine Dion performing.

Celine sings a total of 18 songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars The show is great, but the DVD has some flaws. February 3, 2008
Format:DVD
Well, this is a great live show, but I'm not sure how happy I am with the dvd. The big problem I have is the oboard action of the filming. The show itself is a huge spectacle, which would benefit from lots of long, slow-moving shots that allow the viewer to take in what is happening on stage. Instead, the footage is chopped and slightly erratic. There come points where, between the action on stage and the rapid flurries of changing camera shots, the whole thing becomes a dizzying blur.

I was actually on the film crew for the making of this dvd, and having seen the show live 4 times during that process, I can attest to the fact that this dvd fails to capture the true artistry onstage.

The problem is that the whole thing is edited as though it were a standard concert, with nothing but immobile musicians to view, where active angle changes are needed to keep things interesting to watch. This is not an ordinary concert setting, though. The importance of capturing the huge stage show seems to be lost in the shuffle, with the film being creative right over top of the show's creativity, forming a muddled mess which, while still eye grabbing (and great sounding) really fails to capture the impact of the show in the way it could have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celine Dion at her best January 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful DVD to watch, and has been watched at my home several times already! It comes with one DVD of her last concert, and is about 90 minutes long. It is beautiful to watch, with back-up dancers and singers. The presentation is awesome! The disc #2 of the DVD's is the same concert, only it's behind the scenes. It shows Celine getting ready for the show, eating, and most of all, the rushing around to get prepared. It shows her in between songs running to her dressing room and getting her outfits changed. It also shows her dancers point of views. It is a cool DVD that will get watched over and over. It has all her greatest hits including "I'm Alive". Very nice. It will be watched many more times I can guarentee that one!

Live in Las Vegas...A New Day Has Come (2007)
We just watched the DVD for the umpteenth time and we really enjoy the back stage part. It is the entire concert but seen from the back stage . Worth buying a new disc.

I have the DVD but wonder if buying the Blue Ray would be worth it. Is the Blue Ray a lot better looking than the DVD?

PS this... Read More

Run time difference
I agree, this is confusing. There are some clues on the Blu-Ray product page... but they are conflicting, too.

1) If you add up the individual run-times of Blu-Ray discs 1 & 2 (93 + 120 + 53), you get 266 minutes (already more than the 207 minutes quoted in the "Product Details"... Read More
