The first time I watched this I was pleasantly surprised. Not being opera fan, but a fan of Andrea Bocelli, I decided to see what the more-famous Pavarotti was like, although a good share of this long benefit concert involved his "friends" so it really wasn't that operatic in content
I found the best material, at least for me, in the first half hour. Overall, my favorites in this concert were:
"Ares quite" by the Kelly Family; La ci darem la mano" by Sheryl Crowe and Pavarotti; "My Love" by Zucchero, "Ave Maria" by Pavarotti and the Kelly Family; "Third Degree" by Eric Clapton; "Mediterranean Sundance " by the guitar trio of Paco de Lucia, Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin and "Gesu Bambino" by Joan Osborne and Pavarotti. The latter was just beautifully done, the best of the concert.
Also very good was "Un Piccolo Aiuto by Zucchero and Clapton; "Granada" by Jon Secada and "Live Like Horses" by Elton John.
With over 20 songs on here, you can pick and choose and still wind up with a lot to like.
