Notes & Reviews:

This is a great collection of Roberto Alagna singing opera's greatest hits. CD 1 features Italian arias and songs. CD 2 features French arias and songs.

MusicWeb International
...Alagna's singing is passionate, endearing, full-voiced and very musical. Plus he is courageous and talented enough to follow Verdi's markings in the 'pppp' ending of the aria 'Celeste Aida'. There are not many tenors who can do that...All in all, a wonderful experience from a singer at his peak.
