Notes & Reviews:

French born tenor Roberto Alagna made an immediate impact by the age of 25, when he had his debut as Alfredo in 'La Traviata' - singing in the great opera houses of the world and a recording contract soon followed. The Christmas Album features Alagna in an album of favorite holiday music and the songs that he loves most. "His [Roberto Alagna] voice has grown and the visceral force with which it comes off the stage can be extremely exciting..." -Evening Standard
