In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary “Wings over America” triple live album and the concert film “Rockshow”. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, “Rockshow”, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time.

Opera On Ice is the coming together of the marvels of opera music and the acrobatic maneuvers of figure skating all in one show. Recorded in the magical setting of the Verona Arena, the largest open-air opera theater in the world, Opera on Ice offers some of the most famous arias from twelve operas which have made music history: Don Giovanni – Aida – Carmen – Romeo and Juliet – Turandot – Tosca – La Traviata – Rigoletto – Nabucco – William Tell – L’Elisir d’Amore – Gianni Schicchi.
The international importance of the show is also due to the chorus, the orchestra and the Verona Arena singers as well as to the figure skating stars taking part, first and foremost Carolina Kostner and Olympic champion Stephane Lambiel. Italian skater, Carolina Kostner, has just won the European Championships and comes first in the world ranking.
