Philip Katz and Aldo Scrofani produced a live concert with Andrea Bocelli on July 13, 2016 in Monte Carlo. The occasion was the inaugural and christening of Regent Seven Seas new ship the Regent Seven Seas Explorer – the most deluxe ship ever built.   The event took place outdoors on the world famous Port of Monte Carlo for an invited audience of 800 people including the Royal Family of Monaco. The one hour concert had Maestro Bocelli singing many of his most well-known songs and arias and ended the evening with a breath-taking rendition of Nessus Dorum.


Andrea Bocelli, is one of the greatest singing talents in the world today. Maestro Bocelli did not begin his singing career until the late 1980s, when he began performing in piano bars throughout Italy. Before then he earned a law degree from the University of Pisa. In 1993 he was signed to a record contract after a scout heard him sing during a party. That was the beginning of a spectacular career, which saw him team with some of the best voices in the business. Maestro Bocelli has worked with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti and Sarah Brightman, and has sung for the Pope. Perhaps his best-known hit is “Con Te Partir” [Time To Say Goodbye], a duet with Brightman. Bocelli has also done “Vivo Per Lei”, which means I Live For Her. The song has been translated many times, and Bocelli has teamed up with many different singers in the translations. He himself sings the Italian and Spanish versions, and sings in Italian on the French and German versions of the song.
