Wow ... was Russell s reaction as he walked out to a standing ovation at the venue of his dreams.
This is so much more than a concert; it is an experience of the greatest musical and emotional magnitude.


The spotlight was very much on the man with one of the most sensational singing voices that the classical world has ever known.
But he was not alone; filling the enormous stage with him was the forty-eight piece National Symphony Orchestra, the assured Capital Voices and an eighty- strong backing choir.What a magical sight and what magnificent sound!

Russell made an emotional opening to his fans,
It s difficult to find words to explain how I feel tonight ... because I built myself to this moment from the very day that I finished my last session of radiotherapy.
I remember going to bed dreaming about this night in the most famous of venues on the planet and here I am, thank God - I can t believe it.
Thank you for your welcome, it was absolutely incredible thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart, thank you.


Russell's faultless performance starts with a powerful rendition of 'Somewhere' and 'Ave Maria' and is followed by a string of incredible numbers such as 'Funiculi Funicula' and 'Volare' and closes with a Royal Albert Hall roof-raising 'Nessun Dorma'. One of the highlights of the wonderful set comes when Russell is joined by classical crossover newcomer Mary-Jess for a Phantom Of The Opera medley, and an amazing duet of 'The Prayer'.
This is a dream come true and the performance of a life-time, enjoy

Often the expression 'ultimate' can seem a little ambitious, but in Russell Watson's case it is the only word that describes the scale of this young tenor's achievements.
The Ultimate Collection DVD presents the cream of his filmed stage appearances. On this DVD are the songs that took Russell from obscurity on the club circuit of north-west England to international stardom.


Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards was the first to spot Russell's unique talent when, in 1999, he invited him to perform at the club's Old Trafford ground. For many people this would be their ultimate experience - for Russell it was only one of many more to come.

Multiple performances at Wembley Stadium, singing with Pavarotti to over 70,000 at London's Hyde Park, performing to over five million people in the Independence Day celebrations at The White House and performing in his home town of Manchester for the opening of the Commonwealth Games (to 1 billion TV viewers) - just four of Russell's ultimate experiences.

Alongside were his sell-out solo concerts, spanning the world. Leeds' Millennium Square saw Russell's triumphant broadcast debut in 2001. Just months later, America witnessed 'The Voice' for the first time, relayed from Donald Trump's Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Early the following year, across another ocean (via the QE2), Russell appeared before a massed open-air audience in Auckland, New Zealand. In just nine months, Russell's extraordinary talent had encircled the globe, and this DVD captures the ultimate moments from these ground-breaking occasions.


Away from the stage Russell's achievements are no less impressive. He performed the title track for the Nicolas Cage movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin and the theme music for the Star Trek: Enterprise series (the music videos created for these projects are included here).
But it's Russell's record on the disc that guarantees his status as the ultimate tenor. All of Russell's albums have achieved Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum status. His debut album The Voice broke all records by spending one year at the top of the UK classical chart.


But his success is not confined to the classical world: his second album Encore 10 weeks in the pop chart Top 10. His third, Reprise, produced a Top 10 hit single.
Russell's many achievements can be encapsulated in the one remarkable fact that this young man from Salford, with no more ambition than to sing the songs he loves, was recently declared one of the UK's biggest-selling artists of the 21st century, eclipsing even Madonna.
Both in sight and sound, truly the Ultimate Collection from the ultimate singer.
