In a new concert staged in Germany’s famous Ludwigs Festspielhaus, Sarah Brightman performs beloved favorites and introduces audiences to enchanting selections from her new album, “Hymn.” Accompanied by her band, a 40-piece orchestra, a 50-voice choir and dancers, the world’s most successful and best-selling soprano is joined on stage by other guest artists including Japanese superstar Yoshiki, Vincent Niclo, Mario Frangoulis and Narcis. Filmed in state-of-the-art video and mixed in Dolby Atmos sound, “Sarah Brightman: Hymn” is a hybrid of a musical film, an opera and a large-scale concert production. It premieres Sunday, Dec. 2, at noon on Arizona PBS.
“Sarah Brightman: Hymn” was filmed over two days in September 2018 at the Ludwigs Festspielhaus at the foot of the Bavarian Alps in Germany, a magical setting of mountains, lakes, castles and cuckoo clock houses.
