About

On July 7th, the Waldbühne amphitheatre in Berlin was host to “the greatest voices of their day” (Die Welt am Sonntag) as more than 20,000 spectators gathered to hear Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazón, and Plácido Domingo in an open-air concert celebrating the close of the World Cup tournament. Deutsche Grammophon has brought this extraordinary event – described by the Berliner Morgenpost as “the stuff of myth” – to Blu-ray Disc, featuring the three mega-stars performing music by Verdi, Puccini, Lehár, and many other beloved melodies.

This live broadcast had an international audience of more than 8 million viewers in Germany, Austria, Norway, France, Italy, Mexico, India and South America, generating waves of enthusiastic acclaim in the international press - considered as the biggest live classical broadcast event since The Three Tenors.

The greatest voices of their day came together again on Friday evening. . . Domingo still works his magic . . . Netrebko symbolizes the combination of skill, charisma and naturalness . . . Villazón is the perfect masculine counterpart. . . Great opera needs protagonists like these” - Die Welt am Sonntag, Berlin

The vocalism consistently stood out as superior . . . Domingo at 65 remains a phenomenon; . . . His junior colleagues never lapsed vocally below their high levels” - MusicalAmerica.com

Gooseflesh at the ‘Summit Meeting of the Stars’.” Die Welt, Berlin

They harmonized as though they’ve been appearing together forever.” Gala, Hamburg
