Recorded at their first magical concert at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome in 1990

Magic was created in July 1990, when Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras met onstage at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome and became The Three Tenors. This phenomenal musical event is an awe-inspiring celebration of greatest hits for the tenor voice! Zubin Mehta exquisitely conducts the grandiose Orchestra del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

Presented on July 7, 1990, the eve of the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final, the concert was held to raise money for Carreras' foundation, the José Carreras International Leukemia Foundation. It was also, for his friends Domingo and Pavarotti, a way to welcome Carreras back into the world of opera after his successful treatment for leukemia.

The recording of this debut concert became the best-selling classical album of all time and led to additional performances and live albums. Nearly 50,000 people attended their second concert, which coincided with the final match of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles; around 1.3 billion viewers worldwide watched the televised performance. The three subsequently sang together in concerts at the Champ de Mars under the Eiffel Tower during the 1998 FIFA World Cup, and in Yokohama for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. They also toured other cities around the world, usually performing in stadiums or similar large arenas to huge audiences. They gave their final concert in 2003.
