Australian Television Premiere: Sunday 28 October, 7.30pm
Andrea Bocelli, the Italian superstar, has effortlessly stood centre stage at both opera house and concert hall throughout his career. His passionate delivery has helped make him one of classical music’s most beloved tenors. In a special concert, performed at The Roundhouse in London as part of the iTunes Festival in September 2012, he shows just why he has been called “The Most Beautiful Voice In The World”. The performance, with full orchestra, included classical favourites Schubert’s Ave Maria and Amazing Grace, and the impressive ‘Pour mon âme, quel destin!’ from Donizetti’s La Fille du Régiment. Andrea also performs the drinking song ‘Libiamo ne’ lieti calici’ from Verdi ’s La Traviata, and is joined on stage for duets with Gianfranco Montresor and Sabina Cvilak.
He finishes the concert with his chart-topping hit, Time to Say Goodbye , and ’Nessun dorma’ from Turandot, plus an impromptu encore after long applause.
