Classy In Every Sense, But Unspectacular
9 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't rate this nearly as high as Andrea Bocelli's first filmed concert, but maybe because that one was presented so well that others can never match up to it. I've only seen this twice and since most of the songs are unfamiliar, I'm sure the rating will go up as I hear it more often. These arias are still solid, of course, and Bocelli's voice is as good as ever. The visuals just aren't as colorful.

The church in which this concert was filmed is magnificent and I would have liked to have seen more of it. It is the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome, Italy. A better job of making the visuals more interesting would have made this DVD concert more attractive.

I've never been a fan of opera but anyone can convert me, it's this guy. "Sacred Arias" is what I would call low-key opera. Interspersed here and there in the concert are scenes of Bocelli and his family, and his country.

In all, a soothing and pleasing concert. It won't knock your socks off like Andrea's first DVD, but it's still a quality concert DVD.
