  • Exclusive and for the first time, Arthaus Musik presents this breathtaking concert on DVD. Recorded in August 1988 at the Arena di Verona, the gala – on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Arena di Verona Opera Festival – is one of the high acclaimed concerts of the last decades.

  • This joint concert is hosted by the Spanish star tenor José Carreras. Together with an impressive array of stellar guests, famous singers from all over the world, he presents a magnificent bouquet of arias from operas, which were performed during the last 75 years in this antique place by unforgettable and great voices.

  • Only the final piece, which brings the concert to a resounding close, is not an opera aria. José Carreras sings the song that has since become his personal signature tune: 'Granada' by Agustín Lara.

  • Watching this programme and listening to the distinctive Arena sound, arouses the special feeling of being part of the audience on that night, only a stone's throw away from the stage.

  • The perfect Christmas gift for music-lovers, friends of opera but also for those who want to get in touch with classical music for the first time.
