Brightman shifts tickets

DESPITE the financial crisis, the angelic-voiced Sarah Brightman can still shift tickets.

She sold 80 percent of the seats to her first show at the Shanghai Grand Stage in three weeks. Now she will perform two shows there on March 27 and 28.

She will also rock Beijing, Nanjing and Guangzhou on her Symphony World Tour, which kicked off in Arena Monterrey, Mexico, on November 4 last year.

Since her last tour here five years ago, Brightman has become even more popular after performing a duet with Liu Huan at the opening ceremony of Beijing Olympic Games last year.

Touring with cutting-edge holographic stage sets, Brightman will perform as if floating in a watery pool surrounded by nymphs; riding a bicycle through space; and sitting on a giant swing in a lush forest.

The world's best-selling soprano, Brightman has sold more than 26 million albums and 2 million DVDs. After the huge success of last year's "Symphony" album, she recorded her first Christmas album, "Winter Symphony," on which she performed classic carols such as "Silent Night" and "In the Bleak Midwinter" and laid her luscious vocals over Abba's rare instrumental track "Arrival."
