Format: DVD
A concert at the Sydney Opera House with a full symphony and twenty-seven songs is a sure fire hit. Even if Olivia's gold sequined pant-suit is questionable, she looks and sounds great. Only a few times were those high notes a bit of a stretch, but for someone her age, the vocals were more than satisfying and the show was absolutely professional.

"Have You Never Been Mellow" opens the act and proceeds with songs from `Xanadu' before Olivia does a series of her country-flavored songs, including her first big hit, "If Not For You". A slow version of "Psychical" is extremely interesting and her own penned song, "Not Gonna Give In To It", a response from her battle with breast cancer. Mixing slow ballads ("Cry Me A River") with faster numbers ("Twist Of Fate"), the show completely entertains. The symphony adds an enormous element of power to the show with several symphonic song introductions.

"Tenterfield Saddler", a song written by Peter Allen is sung with pure emotion, as is the other Allen song, "I Honestly Love You". Of course, towards the end of the concert, Olivia plays with the audience and her band members by going through some of the bigger hits from "Grease" with a great rousing rendition of, "You're The One That I Want" and a fun, "Summer Nights". Concluding with the song version of the `Serenity' prayer, Olivia Newton-John brings home the goods.

The concert is a five-star, but this DVD I have to give less to. More than often, DVD Concerts mix interviews' in between concert songs, interrupting the excitement or mood of the entire experience. In between every song, we are witness to Olivia giving us a tour of Sydney, meeting fans and having fun, but this should have been a separate `extra' on the DVD. Still, this is a great experience and is in 5.1 surround for that feeling of "being there".

Incroyable mais vrai! Olivia Newton-John est au début de la soixantaine mais sur la scene elle est d'une grande énergie. Ce dvd nous la montre dans une forme resplendissante; filmé dans un endroit magnifique "The Sidney Opera House" le spectacle se déroule dans un train d'enfer car la chanteuse enchaine succes par dessus succes et ce qui m'a le plus frappé c'est qu'elle a l'air d'etre tres heureuse de chanter devant le public qui l'aime tellement car il faut se rappeler que le spectacle se déroule en Australie et que l'Australie c'est pas mal chez-elle. Les chansons sont entrecoupées de petits clips ou Olivia nous fait visiter Sidney.

A true gem for fans of Olivia. She puts on such a class act at the Sydney Opera House with her own style and humor. I really enjoyed the clips between the songs when she takes the band on a romp through Sydney and the ferry to Manly beach. There are many hilarious moments along the way. Enjoy!!!

this concert is incredible. The sound is the best I've heard on a music DVD and I own over 50. The widescreen transfer is pristine and features many beautiful scenes of Sydney, narrated by Olivia. The orchestra produces majestic background music along with Olivia's own back-up singers and musicians. Her lead guitarist is outstanding. This is excellent value for 28 great songs....a must have DVD for music lovers.
