Customer Reviews

Love Placido Domingo and all.
Sharon Schwarze
Lotti, so often versatile and acrobatic in his approach on other disks seems flat and clouded here.

I am glad I did not pay to see the concert.

This is not your average "Jingle Bell" type of Christmas music. 4 Great singers sing traditional as well as European Christmas songs in 5 different languages and are backed by a delightful children's choir. Placido domingo and Sarah Brightman are simply wonderful. Brightman's rendition of "Child in a manger, Silent night, & First of May" is simply superb. I Highly recomend it.

I bought this dvd to hear Sarah Brightman. I wasn't expecting anything great, maybe a nice disc to watch at Christmas time. I've listened to it 3 times and here is what I think. The choice of music was an eclectic mix of traditional European and modern songs which I thought worked very well. The dvd video and audio quality were excellent. The setting was a beautiful cathedral type structure. Brightman was great as usual. Domingo added a distinguished older presence. Cocciante (who I had not heard before) is very good - he has a raspy beatiful voice which filled the room. Lotti, I wasn't that impressed with (I thought his voice was rather weak). Anyway, I thought overall a pretty enjoyable disc. Those are my two cents. Enjoy the video and music. Buon natale.

This is a wonderful video - great vocals accompanied by a delightful children's choir and an absolutely sublime Vienna Philharmonic. I've watched it over and over again and I highly recommend it to lovers of Christmas music.

Sorry, all you negative reviewers out there, but for MY money LOTTI, COCCIANTE and conductor MERCURIO present themselves as THREE COOL DUDES, along with DOMINGO and BRIGHTMAN as frosting on the (Christmas) cake! A command performance, one and all. (The kid's choir, charming in its scrubbed innocence, ain't bad either.) Buy it!

I taped this performance from PBS. All my family members liked it and my three children,age Two(2) and age 4(1) have watched this video more than twenty times. I bought this video here in Amazon.com as gift to my friend.

I thought that placido was over bearing. Sarah deserves all the credit for that preformance. She made the show much better than it would have been if it were only the other three. As for the two pop singers...Lotti has a weak voice and the other guy .....I honestly don't know how he became a singer, his voice is lacking, but sarah she was delightful...i always love hearing her beautiful voice..she put me in the holiday spirit.

Domingo needed to sight read his music. Brightman was only average. The other "stars" actually sang FLAT! I could not believe my ears. When I played the DVD everyone in my living room said the same thing. They sang FLAT! A huge let down. The choice of music was less than exciting and the arrangements were not suited to the performers. Merry Christmas

Although I haven't seen the video, I have the cd. It is quite good, with many different interpretations and translations of traditional Christmas songs. The two best singers are, of course, Domingo and *the* Sarah Brightman. Sarah Brightman brightens the stage with "first of may" and "santa claus is coming to town"
