Andrea always wanted to do this: the theme is Bocelli's fulfillment of a personal dream honoring America's Italian heritage and musical tradition.
Filmed July 6 "under the stars" at New Jersey's Liberty State Park in front of an audience of 12,000, Thirteen/WNET's sumptuous production, directed by David Horn, captures a sense of spectacle and adds footage of Bocelli visiting the statue for the first time.
The musical firepower is supplied by Bocelli and guests Ana Maria Martinez and Sarah Brightman, who sing nearly two hours of operatic arias and popular Italian songs (plus Brightman's hypnotic performance of "The Music of the Night" from "The Phantom of the Opera"), solo and together with the evening's charismatic star.
The orchestral firepower is supplied by the New Jersey Symphony, conducted by Zdenek Macal with music by Smetana and Leonard Bernstein. The hosting is done with elegant, smarmy enthusiasm by Midge Woolsey and Valerie Smaldone.
Yup, and your business and management buddies over there at [email protected] thought it was great too, so great in fact; that the whole end of the concert wasn't good enough to put on the freakin' DVD i bought, thinking SURELY that we'll get to hear TIME TO SAY GOODBYE!
Look it up; OH SO iRoNiC. Either Bocelli is clairvoyant, or his management is. Since it took several months to plant the demolition charges necessary to destroy WTC towers 1, 2 and 7; the MOSSAD TERRORISTS were inside working at the time!!
Look up the DANCING ISRAELIS; mossad terrorists caught red-handed, cheering and high-fiving whilst filming 911 with lighters lit (like a concert). They were dressed up in Palestinian attire (M.O. anybody?). They even ADMITTED it on israeli TV!! MOSSAD DID 9/11 and ILLUMINATI LET IT HAPPEN.
