This fantastic three disc boxed set features three concerts from Placido Domingo: 1.Placido Domingo Live in Miami 2.Placido Grandissimo 3.Placido Domingo meets Mstislav Rostropovich Placido Domingo is largely responsible for the increasing mainstream popularity of opera among contemporary listeners. To date, he has made over 100 recordings, has won eight Grammy Awards, and has sung more roles and been seen by more people than any other tenor in history. In the sold-out Miami Arena, Domingo gives an evening of musical delight to the crowd. Joined by American soprano Ana Panagulias, he presents a bounty of favourite arias, duets and songs by Puccini, Donizetti, Meyerbeer and others. His talent sparks the Miami crowd to give an ecstatic ovation for one of the master entertainers of our time. Officially opening the Seville World Expo in 1990, Placido Domingo gives a thrilling live concert performance to a capacity crowd at the Seville Stadium. He performs favourite arias by Puccini and Bizet, as well as a selection of popular Spanish songs and zarzuelas. Soprano Julia Migenes joins Domingo in a duet from "Carmen", and also performs solos from Puccini and Gershwin. Domingo is accompanied by the National Symphonic Orchestra of Spain conducted by Eugene Kohn and Manuel Alejandro. Also joining him is soprano Guadalupe Sanchez and guitarist Ernesto Bitetti. A concert from the Roman Theatre in Merida, Spain, recorded in 1991, shows Placido Domingo at his best. He not only sings some of his favourite arias but also conducts the orchestra for Mstislav Rostropovich's performance of a Haydn Cello concerto, plays piano and joins soprano Olga Borodina in an excellent performance of a duet from Bizet's "Carmen". As additional features all DVDs contain biographies and composer documentaries.
Advantages: Reigning champions to win again Disadvantages: Packed midfield means little goalmouth action
...No European Football Championship winner has ever gone on to successfully defend the title. Indeed, of the last three winners, 2 have failed to get out of the group stage and the other was knocked out in the Quarter Finals. Current holders Spain are one match away from achieving this, with only Italy standing in their way. Despite the Italians having been more impressive since the group stage...

Review of Spain
Advantages: A unique and quaint hotel... Disadvantages: Lacking a few mod-cons...
...We stayed in this hotel for a few days while on a little tour of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, including visits to Cancun (don't bother), Playa del Carmen & Cozumel (much better) and the amazing ancient Mayan ruins at Uxmal, Chitzen Itza and Tulum. (I'll try and get round to reviewing all these later...)
We arrived by taxi from Merida airport (a short journey), having flown in from Cancun...
Advantages: Endless, a wonderfulexperience for all ages. Disadvantages: A little hilly if you are bad on your feet
...Spain last October.
We were staying in one of the parks hotel's but this review will be purely for the Park itself as I feel that the hotels are worthy of a review in their own right.
So this review will be for the benefit of people wanting to know of the pros and cons of Port Aventura Theme Park - this review is written from an older person's perspective ( I was an old mum when I had Jack...
