Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980.
The stage-opera-pop star gives a concert in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., as part of her "La Luna Tour." I am guessing the year was 2000 (it doesn't say).
Of the several DVDs I have watched of Brightman's I think this one has the best collection of songs. In all there 26 songs giving up an hour-and-a-half of her singing. The visuals are okay, but I've seen better (her Las Vegas disc, for example). I thought the production was excellent, although there is a lot blue in here. That's the dominant color. However, I bought this for her voice, not worrying about the visuals.
I am not a fan of female opera singers, but I enjoy her voice and she does enough pop numbers to offset any preponderance of the latter. Her repertoire goes back and forth.
This concert offered a few songs I hadn't heard her do before, and ones I really liked such as "He Doesn't See Me" and her version of the Simon & Garfunkel tune, "Scarborough Fair." It was good to see another great singer, Josh Groban, join her for a number, too.
In all, a pleasant concert that you can either watch or be content to use as surround-sound CD while you do something else.
