My wife and I had the rare opportunity of seeing legendary opera singer Andrea Bocelli from the 13th row at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C. While not opera aficionados, we thoroughly enjoyed his show. Bocelli took the stage gracefully and his voice was sublime.
Andrea Bocelli performed with the Vancouver Symphony and a 50-piece choir. Bocelli was joined by soprano Maria Aleida for the first set and by Tony Award-winner Heather Headey for the second. Both women were spectacular.
Bocelli ended the show with his version of Elvis Presley’s “Love Me Tender.” According to Stuart Derdeyn of The Vancouver Sun, nobody sings Elvis like Andrea Bocelli.
