At 9:05 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2009, under the brilliantly illuminated pyramid of “El Castillo” at Chichen Itza, the British soprano, Sarah Brightman, appeared before nearly 6,000 people that awaited her show in silent anticipation. For almost three hours, the singer performed 25 songs and wore 13 different dresses.
Since Chichen Itza was the last venue on her Mexican tour (after Ciudad Juarez, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puebla, and Mexico City), Sarah offered an outstanding performance for attendees from all across Mexico and the world (from 12 different countries). After the first song, Gothica, the soprano welcomed the audience and exclaimed in clear and perfect Spanish how excited she was to perform at one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Her continuing performance of all-time hits amazed the audience. Always glamorous and astonishingly beautiful, Sarah used her enchanting voice in songs like: The Phantom of the Opera, Dust in the Wind, What a Wonderful World, Who Wants to Live Forever, Canto della Terra, Hijo de Luna, among many others. Surrounded by the Symphonic Orchestra of Yucatan and her musicians, the British celebrity also shared the stage with the countertenors Fernando Lima and Erkan Aki.
The authorities of Yucatan declared in a press conference that two of the most important British celebrities of all time have scheduled shows in Chichen Itza for the coming years. Elton John will perform at the archaeological site next year, and Paul McCartney, the ex-Beatle, is expected to give a concert too by 2011.
“El Castillo”, the symbol of Chichen Itza, majestically illuminated for the event.
Always beautiful, the British soprano delighted all the attendees with her unparalleled voice.
