A Gala Christmas in Vienna

On Christmas Day 1997 there was a Christmas concert in Vienna’s Rathaus featuring Plácido Domingo, Sarah Brightman, Helmut Lotti and Riccardo Cocciante, accompanied by the Wiener Symphoniker conducted by Steven Mercurio.

I love only some songs here… sometimes kasi, the singers were overshadowed by the choir. 😦
