The Brightman effect

RIGA - One of today’s most famous sopranos – Sarah Brightman – will give a magnificent performance on Feb. 20 at Arena Riga. The founder and developer of the Classical Crossover genre will perform with a band and dancers with the tour “Dreamchaser.”

Brightman’s name is synonymous with the synthesis of academic and popular music named Classical Crossover, created and developed by her for 25 years. She begun her career as the star of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” I the late ’80s she started her solo career.

Since the beginning of her solo career, she has released 11 solo albums, four compilations, with more than 30 million copies sold. Brightman’s records have been awarded with 180 Gold and Platinum discs in more than 40 countries. Her duet with Andrea Bocelli “Time to Say Goodbye” is included in the Guiness Book of Records as the all-time best-selling single in Germany. U.S. Recording Industry Association has recognized Sarah Brightman as the all-time most successful academic performer.

Brightman’s voice has been rewarded with countless awards and nominations, including Grammy, Echo and Golden Lion awards.

Last year in October at a special press conference many were surprised by Sarah Brightman’s statement that she has been medically recognized as suitable for a flight in outer space, that was Sarah’s long cherished dream. In 2015 she’s planning on going to the International Space Station becoming the first singer and delegate of the entertainment industry that’s visiting outer space.

Critics have acclaimed this album as the strongest proof of Sarah Brightman’s career, highlighting the highly successful and well-considered choice of composition, that’s made very special by her vocal quality. For example, Stephen Unwin of The Daily Express wrote that the album is “an almost surreal, often heartbreaking record that is stirringly epic.”
Similarly The Sun (United Kingdom) in a 5-star review described the album as “much more original and involving than standard opera fare.”

Polari Magazine in another 5-star review described the album as "stunning" and continued that “instead of playing it safe and releasing yet another Mother’s Day Opera-By-Numbers album like most classical singers, Sarah’s general lunacy helps her to take risks most artists in her genre wouldn’t take.”
