"To Venetians and opera lovers throughout the world, the 18th century theatre represents the soul of this unique lagoon city, and its resurrection from the ashes was cause for celebration across Italy." The Guardian

When a fire destroyed La Fenice in 1996, the sense of loss was felt around the world, far beyond arts and music circles, and many countries rallied to assist in its restoration to its former splendour. La Fenice literally means 'phoenix', and when it finally rose from the ashes again in 2003, its rebirth was celebrated with a series of concerts. One of the highlights was the 2004 New Year's Concert. A glorious programme of famous opera choruses and arias, ballet scenes and orchestral music greeted the New Year from the new theatre. Led by conductor Lorin Maazel, a star-studded cast of singers and dancers made this gala concert an unforgettable night that can now be enjoyed on DVD. Among the performers were Italian soprano Stefania Bonfadelli and Italian tenor Roberto Aronica who have recently risen to international fame on opera stages throughout the world. Adding to the glamour of the event were ballet stars Greta Hodgkinson and Roberto Bolle - two breathtakingly beautiful, amazingly flawless dancers.
