Opera for the masses and ME

Opera purists often turn their noses up at Andrea Bocelli. But for a great many people, he is opera. For better or for worse, Bocelli -- who has made a career out of moving between classical and pop -- represents the closest thing to opera that most people will ever experience.

No stranger to Southern California, Bocelli was in town recently to appear at the Honda Center in Anaheim last Sunday evening. The Italian tenor performed a set of holiday music from his latest album, "My Christmas," which was released in November. He also performed some operatic arias and duets.
