Email share

Legendary vocalists José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti return to public television with an encore presentation of their memorable holiday special THE THREE TENORS CHRISTMAS. Taped in December 1999 at the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the program features popular Christmas songs, beloved carols and sacred hymns, including “White Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland” "Sleigh Ride,” “O Holy Night,” “Adestes Fideles,” “Ave Maria, Dolce Maria” and “Amazing Grace.”

Accompanied by the Vienna Symphony and the Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen Children’s Choir, the three tenors resplendently sing 16 festive numbers with their trademark passion and vocal artistry. Highlights of the performance include their classical numbers such as "Ave Maria, Dolce Maria." Sung by all three tenors, this is an emotionally moving number filled with dramatic crescendos and heart-stirring notes. Likewise, Domingo and Pavarotti's duet of "Cantique de Noel (O Holy Night)," featuring the angelic voices of the children's choir and the mesmerizing power of the operatic tenors, seemingly reaches celestial heights.

Set in an opulent concert hall against a backdrop of twinkling lights, THE TREE TENORS CHRISTMAS is a festive holiday collection capturing the joy and spirit of the season.
