TOO MANY LIGHTS
The background lighting was definitely excessive, and she did seem to be screaming at times, but I felt as though I had my money's worth. We all have to start somewhere, and I think she was very generous bringing her guest."tenor" who certainly did not appeal, Maybe I go to the Opera too often. Surprised she did Jerusalem with different lyrics, and one of Vivaldi's seasons, I think, but they were both enjoyable. Terry Peters

One of the most extraordinary voices in the world! The accompanying light show and excessively loud music for too many of the songs was a needless distraction and brought my overall score down to a four.

SARAH IN SEATTLE 2019
My wife has been wanting to see Sarah Brightman for more years than I remember. We were able to see her perform last night in Seattle, WA. Me, not as familiar with her music, came along to experience the joy of my wife seeing her favorite performer. The show...was entertaining. We saw Andrea Bocelli twice in Seattle and loved his show so we looked forward to Sarah. Her voice is amazing and her range is incredible. The draw back is that her orchestra is a tad too loud and drowns out a gifted performer. The light show is spectacular except the bright spot lights located behind the choir; way too bright and blinding. The last issue was with Keith Moon-esk drummer. The constant twirling of the sticks as if playing for Metallica is way overdone and at times had the feeling he was trying to capture the spotlight away from Sarah. Overall my wife and I truly enjoyed the show.

BLINDING LIGHT SHOW
Sarah brightman is an excellent tremendous singer but she sang her most popular songs only toward the end of her show and only a few songs. The most annoying part of the show is the blinding light that is directed to the audience for most of the show making you feel like you're looking at bright light headlights throughout the whole show. terrible show format. It could have been a much more enjoyable show if structured correctly.

Do the folks putting on these shows read these reviews?? Serval revlewers stated that the lighting was bad if not terrible. The strobe light behind Sarah blind us...and it just did not go away. Still have spots before our eyes..

FUN TO WATCH BUT LOTS OF THE SHOW LIP-SYNCED
Golly, I loved the HYMN album so much that I know it by heart. We went to see Sarah at Constitution Hall 2/19 and much (maybe all?) of the evening was lip-synced by Sarah and her co-stars Narcis and Vincent Niclo. Our tix were almost $400 total--which I think is a waste of money for watching performers lip-sync.

I looking forward to a lovely evening at the Fox listening to Sarah Brightmans beautiful voice, instead l got a glaring light show directly in my face! Throughout the entire concert. I guess those of us that sat in the mezzanine didn't get the same treatment that those did on the main floor. Was very disappointed
