Filmed in Sydney at The State Theatre a beautiful old Edwardian venue on 31st October. It s a Greatest Hits tour celebrating her 40th Anniversary in showbiz and includes some new material (including a song written for her, when she was in Evita, by Dustin Hoffman & Bette Midler that shes never performed before) together with all her West End / Broadway hits. She also tells anecdotes from her career, and performs a number of the songs in costume. This is the first time shes been filmed in concert since 1991.

I just received this DVD and watched it through straight away. I couldn't get tickets to see the show, so was thrilled to hear it had been filmed. It has been beautifully done and you feel as if you were there but with the best seat in the house! Elaine is totally fabulous - looks amazing and sounds incredible. She sings lots of songs from the shows she has starred in, some even in character and costume. There is new material and old favourites. The orchestra and musical director are so talented as well, giving all the atmosphere to the show. Any fan of Elaine Paige or musical theatre generally with absolutely love this DVD. Elaine is a legend - 40 years on stage - I can't believe it!

Being a number one fan of Elaine i just coulden't wait for this to come out.
I saw the same show in Cardiff last year. In this DVD you feel as if you are in the beautifull theatre it is filmed in. You feel as if you have the best seat in the house, for a concert that only a true professional like Elaine can give.She looks fabulous too, really stunning. New and old fans will not be disappointed.
Add to all of this the fabulous musical director she has with her. There are new and old songs alike, especially the one from her greatest musical' Chess', ' I know him so well'.It never fails to send chills down my spine.This DVD showcases a wonderful artist at her very best

I was so much looking forward to receiving my copy of this DVD and when it arrived, I wasn't disappointed. The DVD is the result of a fabulous production, fantastically filmed, capturing the First Lady of British Musical Theatre at her very best. Her performance throughout is outstanding : always professional, at times comical and at times moving. The concert includes not only the material that Elaine is known and loved for but new material such as the fantastic "Small Packages" written especially for the concert and a heart-felt performance of the Beatles' song "Yesterday" amongst others. The DVD also includes a performance of "Grow Young" which some might remember, was Elaine's encore in her 1991 concert tour performances and is a song taken from her "Love Can Do That" album. Elaine's ability to perform is second-to-none and her vocal ability remains outstanding, something which this DVD demonstrates very well.

Having seen Elain Paige in many concerts over the years I have to say THIS IS THE BEST SOUVENIR anyone could wish for. Beautifully filmed and with a terrifice orchestra this is EP at her very best. Song from every show she has appeared in are given either moving or comic treatment as required and this is backed up by Elaine's intimate introductions of each number to the audience. She not ony sings wonderfully but literally "acts out" each number.
Now if only her 1991 tour could be released on DVD as I've worn out at least 3 VHS copies.

This dvd and concert shows Elaine Paige singing all the songs she is most remembered for. So many wonderful theater hits are included as well as others: "Life Goes On, Tomorrow, Easy to be Hard, Braodway Baby, I Don't Know How to Love Him, Small Packages, Hello Young Lovers, Yesterday, Don't Cry for Me Argentina, I Dreamed A Dream, I Know Him So Well, Memory, With One Look, and more. The dvd is sharp and clear and I'm so glad I have it. In the USA you need a special region free player for this dvd.

A magical reminder of all the fabulous shows she has starred in over the years brought into my own living room. She certainly shows you why she is the "number one" star of musical theatre in the U.K.

If you are a fan of EP aka Elaine Paige then this DVD is a MUST have! She truly lives up to everything
thing you've heard or read about her amazing energy and lovely singing voice. There is no doubt I will
never been able to see her perform in person, but this DVD is the next best thing! It is like sitting in
the front row watching the most amazing singer in all of Britian entertain you with all her heart and soul.
Her choices of songs are delightful, her delivery is beyong expectation and she does a fabulous job changing
her costume and hair right before your eyes! This DVD is truly God's gift to all Elaine Paige fans far and wide.
How lucky can one be to have such wonderful music to enjoy in our daily lives! As an American I am so thankful that I am able to enjoy Britian's finest with this marvelous DVD.

This is a beautiful piece of work---I could easily imagine being right in the theater and caught up in the energy of the performance. I am so happy that Susan Boyle has introduced me to E P. The videography on the DVD is outstanding but the artist's stage presence and ability to interpret the music and varied characters speaks volumes of her extraordinary talent, a gift that she apparently loves to share and her audience is enriched because of it.
