Sarah Brightman delivers yet agian,
This review is from: Sarah Brightman Symphony: Live in Vienna (CD & DVD) (DVD)
If Sarah Brightman possesses anything, it is professional integrity. Every detail of her musical and stage productions exude a style, elegance and grace seen by few performers of her day. Meticulous with details, she truly strives to transport her fans to a different world.
With "Live in Vienna" Brightman has truly delivered a stunning concert both visually and musically. The setting, the Cathedral Stephensdom in Vienna. The cinematography fused with the breathtaking visuals creates an amazing experience for the viewer.
Either draped in a red stunning gown or a metallic gold corset, the style of the early renaissance clearly comes across in the custom made couture.
Brightman soars through nearly all the tracks from her most recent platinum release "Symphony". The songs from Symphony draw inspiration from gothic musical aspects, creating a rock/metal influenced operatic sound. "Fleurs Du Mal" (The opening song) sets the bar high. The song infuses rock and opera elements flawlessly giving it a very new yet familiar sound. The highlight of the evening comes when Brightman teams up with Chris Thompson on the rock inspired duet "Phantom of the opera" The song is given a modern makeover complete with bombastic drums and a powerful organ.
By concerts end, Brightman reminds us why she is the most successful soprano in history (Over 26 million records sold) when she delivers the stunning "Time To Say Good-bye", poignant for such a special and enchanting evening.

The camera angles and lighting were terrific, as well as the music. Just replace that Thompson guy next time.
