    I saw them for the first time tonight and they are nothing short of amazing. Very eclectic choice from The Marriage of Figaro to Bohemian Rhapsody (normally I would consider covering Queen verboten but that was the best part of the performance).

    And eye candy galore. I watched as well-heeled duPont descendents' wives whistled, hooted, and shouted for more. I'm surprised they didn't throw money or panties on stage. :biggrin1:

    Here's a link for those interested:

    Ten Tenors

    I"ll check youtube and see if anything's available.

    I thought there were only three. :confused: Have they been multiplying?

    :biggrin1: Nope. Different group altogether. This one hails from Australia. They've worked with popular musicians like Elton John and did vocals on the Jungle Book 2 soundtrack.

    He has a famously small endowment. Oh, sorry, you are not thinking about that...

    And right now here in Heidelberg, we have posters up all over promoting The Five Tenors, who seem to specialize in over-the-top hand gestures:

    *will pay more attention when the 4 Falsettos go on tour* :rolleyes:

    I just listened to their version of Bohemian Rapsody. It was too sweet. The voices are pretty but they did not have the edge of Freddie Mercury. The song was 'nice' but it was missing the edge of the original.

    This is the first I have heard of TTT. I know well the Three Tenors and have seen them mainly b/c my fave tenor is Carreras, secondly Domingo. I want to thank you for showing me what I was missing they really are talented and now I must see them live.

    I perused youtube for examples of their artistry and found the following:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbqvCi49hrs

    Funiculi Funicula, A staple of the tenor repertoire which is used as a way to introduce you to the faces behind the voices.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-go1ByRwO4

    Just to see each other again.

    Places

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEEsEqBab8Y

    Il Gladiatore. From the film The Gladiator originally sung by the incomparable Lisa Gerard

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhaGAhxBlqk

    Heres to the heroes. An emotionally moving performance for the soldiers who fight and die in battle.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3t5bPtP8yc

    Bohemian Rhapsody. A brilliant version of this rock classic and one that Freddie Mercury would be proud to hear. He was a huge fan of opera and ten attractive men singing his music would be a slice of heaven to him. They also cut loose and have some fun.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQsWnKS6nUI

    Nessun Dorma. Probably the most well known of all tenor pieces. This is
    tremendous and when you hear them all on that High C it stirs the soul of a true opera lover. I just wish they had sung VINCERO more rubato dragging out the notes for full effect.

    Some of these clips have glitches in them which does indeed suck but hey they're free so protest to youtube not me lol.
    I searched in vain for my favorite tenor aria "E Lucevan le Stelle" form Tosca to no avail. if anyone knows where I can hear them doing this plz be so kind to let me know :biggrin1:

    Also wanted to let anyone know who might be interested that the Metropolitan Opera is showcasing productions from the met Live in Hi-def at your local movie theater.
    On Dec 30th they will be doing Die Zauberflote by Mozart and on Jan 6th I Puritani by Bellini. If you are unable to attend the met live this is the second best thing.

    Find out more info by going here .
