Andrea Bocelli – Romanza

A profile of the blind Italian tenor, who devotes himself to opera singing but also enjoys performing pop music. Evidence of this is his album of ballads, containing hits such as Caruso, Miserere and the duet Time To Say Goodbye with Sarah Brightman. For a long time Andrea Bocelli was unable to make a name for himself as a singer and was rejected by record labels. He made his living as a bar pianist and singer. His break came in 1992, when the rock star Zucchero offered him the chance to record a demo singing “Miserere” in a duet with him. The recording impressed Luciano Pavarotti himself, who expressed his admiration of the Bocelli's singing. He couldn't believe that this was only a bar singer and pianist playing locally. Now audiences again have the opportunity to be enchanted by his voice, and perhaps also dream a little whilst enjoying the performance at Křižík's fountain.
