The Three Tenors in Concert 1994 is a live album by José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti with conductor Zubin Mehta. The album was recorded on July 16, 1994 at the Three Tenors concert in Los Angeles with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the chorus of the Los Angeles Opera.[1] An estimated 1.3 billion viewers watched the concert on television across the world.[2]


The AllMusic reviewer wrote that the singers displayed "vitality and pizzazz" during the concert. The reviewer remarked on the oddity of a concert by classical musicians held in a sports stadium, but nonetheless believed that the popularity of the tenors made the venue less "ludicrous". The reviewer also found them to be in "fine form" in regard to their singing and singled out certain numbers for praise: Domingo's "Granada," Carreras' "O souverain, o juge, o père," and Pavarotti's "Nessun dorma", as well as "La donna è mobile" and "Libiamo ne' lieti calici", which all three men sang together.[3]
