In the tradition of the original The Three Tenors, world-class singers Placido Domingo, Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon joined forces to entertain a live audience of 20,000 spectators on location and millions more around the world on TV. They sang the most famous arias and duets from the world of opera, accompanied by the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and its conductor Marco Armiliato. The event took place on 7 July 2006 at Berlin's legendary Waldbühne, a venue modeled after ancient amphitheaters that has hosted all the giants of the rock and pop world, such as Robbie Williams and the Rolling Stones.

Looking back on an extraordinary career that has been honored with 9 Grammys and 3 Latin Grammys, Plácido Domingo has become the very epitome of the operatic tenor, even among people who have no particular interest in classical music. He is a star who beguiles every audience with his virile charisma. Russian soprano Anna Netrebko's phenomenal career keeps her rushing from one highlight to the next. Her debut as Natasha Rostova in Prokofiev's War and Peace at New York's Metropolitan Opera had the critics hailing her as an "Audrey Hepburn with a voice." On stage, Anna's heart belongs to the Mexican breakout star Rolando Villazon, whom Placido Domingo sees as his potential successor and as the tenor with the brightest future. And how can the heartrendingly expressive singer not touch each and every one of us when he says of himself: "I love people. I love to sing. And I love surprises." Together, Netrebko and Villazon unleashed a worldwide media frenzy in the summer of 2005 with their rapturously acclaimed La Traviata at the Salzburg Festival, and the subsequent Violetta album immediately shot up to the top of the charts.
