    Anyone heard of/seen him in concert? What do you think?

    I think he's pretty amazing... Have seen him twice before- and he's doing a Christmas Concert at the MCI center in DC... I found two floor seats for face value, debating going tonight... decisions, decisions...:confused:

    Go, he's fantastic.

    My mother didn't like him at first because "he never opens his eyes when he sings."


    I had to gently say to her, but Mum, he's blind...

    I saw him at the Proms in the Park in London in September. Absolutely amazing voice and the emotion really carries over; his range of both arias and popular Italian airs are beautiful. I'm much more a fan of tenors than sopranos.

    Funny this thread should pop up - I've been singing his version of Con te partirò for the past few days ;)

    my only concern is that there won't be enough of just "him"- it's being billed as a "Christmas Event" or something or other...

    ah well, he doesn't come around often as it is, have to take the opportunities when they present themselves...
