The Three Tenors From Left To Right – Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Luciano Pavarotti

The Three Tenors – musical mega stars.

Each one – the Spaniards, Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo, and the Italian, Luciano Pavarotti – powerhouses of operatic singing.

And when they combined their talents – performing at the ancient baths of Caracalla in Rome on July 7, 1970, musical history was made.

Their performance – on the eve of the FIFA World Cup – attracted a world-wide audience of around 800 million people.

The recording of their concert became the best-selling classical album of all times.

All of it led to the trio performing at three other World Cup finals and undertaking a world tour, playing to huge audiences.

They last performed together in 2003.
