On the evening of July 7, 1990, an `impossible dream' came true: the three greatest tenors of the day joined forces with an orchestra of 200 musicians against a backdrop of the majestic scenery of ancient Rome.
In the famous Baths of Caracalla in Rome, on a brilliant starlit night with a full moon rising, Placido Domingo, José Carreras, and Luciano Pavarotti, together with Maestro Zubin Mehta, presented an evening of arias, songs and medleys which was unique in musical history.
For the 6,000 fortunate people who crowded into Caracalla that evening, it was an experience never to be forgotten. This recording is a document of that special performance, recorded live on the occasion, as a souvenir for music-lovers everywhere.
The original 1990 digital multi-track recording has been newly re-mastered, maintaining the recorded sound in the digital domain throughout the mixing, editing and CD transfer stages, giving an increased fidelity and presence to this unique recording.
