by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2017

On September 16th , 2011 the Great Lawn of Central Park was filled with 60,000 adoring fans of one the most beloved tenors of all time, Andrea Bocelli. Accompanied by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of the great Alan Gilbert, not even the rains of Hurricane Maria could dampen this spectacular night of music. Joined by some of the biggest stars of both the pop and classical music scenes, the night was bursting with the sounds of Bocelli's  treasured hits.  A "pop culture extravaganza", Bocelli, along with Celine Dion, Tony Bennet, Chriss Botti, Bryn Terfl (and many others) transformed one of the most remarkable and renowned urban parks into the grandest of Opera houses, the most opulent of theatre venues, and the flashiest of concert arenas, in an evening that exemplified the magic of New York City and the great Central Park concert series.
