A brand new recording of the much celebrated Nessun Dorma! from Puccinis Turandot is included; a signature piece for Bocelli as it was for his mentor Luciano Pavarotti.
The album draws on arias which inspired Andrea throughout his career, from his first memory of opera, Verdis La donna e mobile to his newest recording of the great aria Donna non vidi mai from Puccinis Manon Lescaut.
Includes Andreas personal favorites from the masterpieces of Puccini and Verdi, as well as the very best of French opera, featuring arias by Massenet, Gounod and Bizet.
Bocelli explains: The main objective of this type of album is to draw people closer to the opera, in particular, to the whole opera. So, I chose the tracks that are the most engaging the first time you listen to them. I hope I have made the right choice and it encourages people to discover more.
The collection will be accompanied by a simultaneous release of the complete Manon Lescaut opera.
