In 1990, the world’s three most fa­mous tenors — Lu­ciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Car­reras — per­formed their first con­cert to­gether. The per­for­mance, in Rome on the eve of the World Cup soc­cer fi­nal, earned mil­lions of dol­lars for char­ity. An al­bum of the event, Car­erras-Domingo-Pa­vorotti in Con­cert, was a sur­prise hit on the pop charts, and even­tu­ally be­came the best-sell­ing clas­si­cal al­bum of all time.
