This 2CD album brings together ten of the most famous tenors, performing nearly 50 of the greatest arias of all time. It also features a 16-page booklet with everything you need to know about each tenor - nationality, short biography, best recording, trivia and more - in an appealing and witty design.

Disc One contains 24 operatic arias, opening with the all-time tenor of tenors, Luciano Pavarotti, singing Nessun Dorma. Juan Diego Flórez delivers the astonishing Ah mes amis (with its 9 top Cs) in supreme style, Villazón sings Verdi and Handel, while Jonas Kaufmann can be heard in Puccini, Bizet (Carmen) and even Wagner.

Disc Two contains film themes, Neopolitan songs, Sicilian songs, sacred music and others. Highlights include Andrea Bocelli's Ave Maria (from his best-selling Sacred Arias album); Joseph Calleja singing the "love theme" from Cinema Paradiso, Plácido Domingo with No Puedo Ser and José Carreras singing Granada.

THE BOOKLET was designed in the style of collectable sport cards book, featuring:
