Being Sarah Brightman's "Harem"Tour," this concert has a big Middle Eastern flavor. Actually, I was disappointed in the visuals and production after reading great review of this (elsewhere). Being that it was staged at the huge MGM Grand Hotel, I expected more colors and bigger stage production in this concert. Instead, it was just a half-dozen dancers in the background and pretty much the same type of concert one would have seen other tours, such as her "La Luna Tour." In fact, I found there was no use owning both this and the "La Luna" DVD, so I traded this one in and kept the latter.
There's nothing wrong with her voice in this concert, however. The songs in the "Harem Tour" come in three segments: pop, opera and then back to pop again with an emphasis on "Phantom of the Opera" favorites.
This is still better than owning a CD of Brightman's because you get more more music and a betters sound for your money, but if you're looking for something to admire visually while listening to the music, this won't satisfy you. For big fans of Sarah, however, there are lots of extras on this DVD.
