Editorial Reviews

The legendary tenors José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, together with conductor Zubin Mehta, celebrated the finale to soccer's 1994 World Cup with a concert described as probably the biggest single musical event in history .

Brought together for the 1990 World Cup in Italy, The 3 Tenors and Mehta joined forces again, this time in Los Angeles Dodger Stadium on July 16th 1994 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Music Center Opera Chorus, to perform a selection of operatic arias and international favourites specially orchestrated by composer/arranger Lalo Schifrin.

The result is an outstanding film, reflecting a unique event, featuring three legendary performers who share a united passion for opera and football.

THE VISION: THE MAKING OF THE 3 TENORS IN CONCERT 1994

The Vision gives you the chance to look behind the scenes and watch as the story of The Making of The 3 Tenors in Concert 1994 unfolds.

With Budapest's Heroes Square as the inspiration, a baseball stadium is transformed into the greatest amphitheatre ever built, combining classical architecture with the beauty of nature.

A vast array of contracts are agreed, the repertoire is chosen (changed and chosen again!), including medleys specially arranged by renowned composer Lalo Schifrin, an orchestra and chorus are prepared, sound and live recording equipment is installed... and Los Angeles' busy air traffic is persuaded to keep away from the stadium during the concert.

From an intimate charity concert in Monte Carlo in June, there is exclusive film of The 3 Tenors relaxing, rehearsing and in concert performing Libiamo ne lieti calici and Granada . And six weeks later in Los Angeles, Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti and Mehta are captured at their final dress rehearsal before the momentous 1994 concert.

Finally, as World Cup fever and tenor-mania grip Los Angeles simultaneously, four of classical music's premier and most popular talents combine to perform La donna é mobile from the concert that enthralled the world.

Created and produced by Tibor Rudas

It was the best jam session ever, and if you haven't seen it, you've been deprived.

As for the other two tenors, their selections perfectly show off their range and skills as performers as well as singers.

Good quality sound and good quality video of the first of the three tenors concerts.

Without all the glitz and sparkle, before the hype! This is the greatest classical concert ever! As a tenor myself I couldn't be more thrilled to hear this gem. The three voices were marvelous.
Domingo here is in top voice. Some of his singing in this concert is the finest you will ever hear from him. He is in a dark and excitingly dramatic voice! Her give perhaps the best Pue De Ser Ever! At 50 his voice is as glorious as ever. he is in a great mood all night giving all of his sound and heart unconditionally to each song, to me he lead this concert along with his emotion packed performances that never seemed to diminish.
i have mixed feelings about Carreras. He is my favorite tenor of all time, but this is not the time to see him. It almost makes you cry to see what has happened to his glorious voice in this concert. His singing is fine, but hardly under control. His vibrato can get warbly and his eyebrow doubly so. This doesn't keep his from being number one in my heart. he gives passionalte renditoins of songs pouring everything his diminsihed voice had in it into each aria. This is one of the last times you can hear him sing some of his classics like Improviso. E la Solita storia and Improviso are both the highlights of his night, he will bring you to tears with these long Aria's. He loses control of his voice at the end of Improviso but te fact that he even sang it is impressive, it is my favorite. Carreras will please the listeners ear here but promise if you hear this concert that you will also invest in some of his earlier material before his voice grew dark and overweight. I suggest The golden Years Cd which recently came out which shows him in his prime doing all of his classics.
Pavarotti is in good voice all night.

I love this DVD!
Performed in Los Angeles in 1994 and of course features Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. Zubin Metha conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The camera angles are well placed, the switching is done appropriately and the editing has resulted in a beautiful production.
What I liked about the overall performance was the obvious magical chemistry that seemed to bind the performers, orchestra and audience from the very beginning. Early on, the singers must have gotten the unmistakable feeling of having the audience in the palm of their hands.
On an individual basis the whole night featured one great performance after the other: each tenor got to show off his unique voice and talent. One got the distinct feeling that a competitive atmosphere started to develop as the tenors seemed to try to outdo one another with each successive piece of music. The result was nothing short of a spectacular evening of entertainment. Who won "the battle of the Tenors" is a purely subjective matter: but I have my own winner (which I'll keep to myself)
It appeared that the best time was had by the conductor Zubin Mehta: how could you not be enjoying yourself conducting a world renown orchestra and three of the worlds greatest opera singers before an enthusiastic and receptive audience. What more would it take to make one happy? Precious little I think!
All and all, a must have DVD for any opera fan. This concert will be remembered for a long time to come and deservedly so.

This is one of those events, whether musical or otherwise, that comes along once a generation. The result is that everyone remembers where they were when....

In my case, I was pottering around at home, blissfully unaware of anything, when my Dad phoned me and said "Turn on your TV - three guys are singing beautifully." I did, and the rest is history.

I'm a professional musician and can't pull out bits or say where people were better than others. Pavarotti was aureate and majestic, his great bulk filling the space, singing with his entire face....Jose Carreras wonderfully intense and sensitive, like the younger brother, keen to impress and seeking approval (later bravely to fight his own health battles)....and Domingo was mischievous and competitive.

Zubin Mehta held the whole event together brilliantly, part authoritative, part conspiratorial. In the magical setting of Caracalla, the whole was greater than the sum of its parts.

It was the best jam session ever, and if you haven't seen it, you've been deprived. If you have, you'll want it again.

I'm not going to repeat what others have said about this concert - we already know they're brilliant.

I just wanted to clarify what's in this DVD as compared to other Three Tenors DVD's:

This is a 2-disc box set, which contains the original concert (1.5 hours) plus a 1-hour documentary on the tenors. It also contains extras, a karaoke "extra", and other bonus material.

I hope this helps - if you want to own this classic on DVD, I definitely think the box set is worth the extra dollar.

Enjoy!

This remains my favourite of the three big concerts done in conjunction with the World Cup. The participation of 2 full orchestras instead of one is appropriate for such a major event, and they were rehearsed until they sounded as one large orchestra instead of two, which apparently was quite a difficult task. This was a welcoming of Jose Carreras into the music community after his terrible ordeal with leukemia. My favourite parts are when the tenors sing together, and since Domingo's voice is quite baritonal - he has done The Barber of Seville recently - whereas Pavarotti's tenor is at the highest range, and Carrera's is in the middle, they can all be heard quite clearly without overpowering each other. The programming is interesting too, and the fioratura duel between them in 'o sole mio adds an original touch to the production. I believe Mehta conducted as well in this concert as he did in Los Angeles 4 years later. The audio quality is very fine too and better, based on my experience at a show in Vancouver BC a few years ago, than what one is likely to hear at a Three Tenors live concert. The picture does have some vertical oscillations, probably due to the use of hand-held cameras, which does detract from the concert's overall quality - hence 4 stars instead of 5.
This can be warmly recommended in either VHS or DVD, although the latter format has slightly better sound and video quality.
