In July 1987 the 40-year-old José Carreras was forced to accept the devastating diagnosis that he was suffering from leukaemia. After a year spent fighting to save the life of the world famous singer – at first with little hope of success – doctors finally achieved what they and hundred thousands of fans all over the world had been praying for. The charming Catalan won the fight against cancer and was able to start his comeback. This liederabend is without doubt one of the most extraordinary evenings of vocal music in the glittering history of the Vienna State Opera. For it represents not simply a celebratory comeback to the stage after many months of absence: what it amounts to is nothing less than an artistic rebirth. When José Carreras took to the stage, the audience rose in unison and a banner was hoisted aloft in the stalls proclaiming the message everyone in the audience thought of: “José, we love you!”
