The Three Tenors were a popular operatic singing
group during the 1990s and early 2000s, consisting of Spaniards Plácido Domingo and José
Carreras and the Italian Luciano Pavarotti. The trio began their collaboration with a performance at the ancient Baths
of Caracalla in Rome, Italy on 7 July 1990, the eve of the 1990 FIFA World
Cup Final. Zubin Mehta conducted the orchestra of Maggio Musicale
Fiorentino and the orchestra of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. The
recording of this debut concert became the best-selling classical album of all time and led to additional
performances and live albums. Around 1.3 billion viewers worldwide watched their second televised performance four years later at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. They last performed together at an arena in Columbus, Ohio on 28 September 2003.
