Notes & Reviews:

A beloved member of The Three Tenors, Spain's Jos Carreras has become one of the most passionate, popular and affecting singers of his time. Though his worldwide celebrity was sealed by his first collaboration in The Three Tenors with Pl cido Domingo and the late Luciano Pavarotti in 1990, Carreras had been one of opera's finest tenors for almost twenty years, his sweet and lyrical voice commanding a wide range of roles from the ardent young romantic hero of Werther to the dangerous Don Jos of Carmen. He has also won new fans with his song recordings and his charming forays into the Broadway repertoire.
