Product Description

Wow ... was Russell s reaction as he walked out to a standing ovation at the venue of his dreams.

This is so much more than a concert; it is an experience of the greatest musical and emotional magnitude.

The spotlight was very much on the man with one of the most sensational singing voices that the classical world has ever known. But he was not alone; filling the enormous stage with him was the forty-eight piece Arts Symphonic impeccably led by Lizzie Ball under enigmatic conductor Robert Emery, the assured Capital Voices and an eighty- strong backing choir. What a magical sight and what magnificent sound!

Russell made an emotional opening to his fans,

It s difficult to find words to explain how I feel tonight ... because I built myself to this moment from the very day that I finished my last session of radiotherapy.

I remember going to bed dreaming about this night in the most famous of venues on the planet and here I am, thank God - I can t believe it.

Thank you for your welcome, it was absolutely incredible thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Russell s faultless performance starts with a powerful rendition of Somewhere and Ave Maria and is followed by a string of incredible numbers such as Funiculi Funicula and Volare and closes with a Royal Albert Hall roof-raising Nessun Dorma . One of the highlights of the wonderful set comes when Russell is joined by classical crossover newcomer Mary-Jess for a Phantom Of The Opera medley, and an amazing duet of The Prayer .

This is a dream come true and a performance of a life-time, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice lives up to his Name 10 May 2011
I was lucky enough to be at this show at The Royal Albert Hall last week. It was a wonderful evening full of fabulous music & a truly first rate performance from Russell who took command of the stage & gave 100% to each & every song. Opening with "Somewhere" from West Side Story with all the power & richness that song deserves, followed by the stunning and haunting "Intermezzo" from Cavalleria Rusticana. Other songs included the Phantom of the Opera showstoppers "Music of the Night" and "All I Ask of You" - both sung in a rich and beautiful tenor voice. The Theme from the Godfather was sung in English "Speak Softly Now" - every note resounded through the Hall. A new song for this tour was "The Impossible Dream" that Russsell felt summed up his story. The show ended (well almost) on an impeccable "Nessun Dorma" with the final note being perfection. The first of many encores was Les Miserables "Bring him Home" that reduced my sister to tears. On to the big show stopping Last Night of the Proms ending - Jerusalem & Land of Hope & Glory - once wasn't enough as Russell encouraged us all to sing it again. Before heading home Russell left us with the last track from la Voce "Someone to Remember Me" that stole the show with its emotion and the magic of his voice & the wonderful Orchestra & backing singers. Pure entertainment. A memory to treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 11 Nov 2011
Russell fan or not, anyone will be overwhelmed by this DVD of his concert. I watched the show at Symphony Hall Birmingham early this year and I was taken over by it. This is a man of talent who is so down to earth and in touch with his fans that they would follow him anywhere.

This DVD must be seen it is inspiring.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Was at the first live performance at The Lowry last March. This new DVD captures all the memories of that evening plus many extras. All my family are extremely impressed with Russell and the wonderful songs he chose for this evening at the RAH. Bring him home is sung with full of emotion. A delight to watch. Thoroughly recommended to all his fans as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 22 Mar 2012
We don't have the DVD but my wife and I attended the concert at the Royal Albert (12th row from the stage). We traveled from Canada to see this because we've been fans for some time now watching his other DVDs over and over again. We never anticipated the immense production that was planned for this event. We were blown away to say the least. Russell was not only the singer he had been since his time away but better. We thoroughly enjoyed the concert which will be remembered for generations. This is because his performances are timeless and he puts 110% into every aspect. Congratulations Russell! Your triumph is shared by all of us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Russell Watson - Live at the Royal Albert Hall 25 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I received this DVD in mid December and decided to invite some 10 couples to view it with us. Some had seen seen Russell's New Zealand concert and were already converts to a man whom we rate as the best male singer and entertainer of our era. I printed the words for "O Holy Night", "Jerusalem" and "Land of Hope and Glory" so that we could all sing along at the end. It turned out to be one of the best evenings entertainment that we have had in many years! Russell was fantastic! He has a wonderful stage personality, the song choice was superb and his rendition of the songs was wonderful! Russell Watson is back with a bang and is better than ever. His voice has matured and I think has darkened a bit so that he sometimes sounds like a baritone in the lower register but in the higher register he is very definately a tenor. And what a tenor!!! Many of the ladies said that he gave them goose flesh when he got to the high C! The Conductor, orchestra, choir and backing singers were superb! We encourage applause and shouting when we play DVD music concerts to our friends and I can tell you that neighbours 10 doors away knew that we were having a good time with this one! I have a collection of 220 music DVD's of some of the best artists in the world. Without a doubt this is the very best DVD in our collection and I play it at least 3 times per week. The interesting thing is that every one of the couples immediately went home and ordered their own copy from Amazon. Some also ordered copy of the New Zealand Concert.
The news of this wonderful evening has spread very fast overnight and we now have many requests from friends for a Russell Watson evening in our home. Looks as if every Friday for 2012 is now booked up! Also interesting that many friends who have not yet seen the DVD have already ordered a copy based purely on the recommendation of the first group.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the Knitting
I chose this rating to reflect my view that Russell was marketed beyond his strengths, which are Italian-style operatic pieces.
