José Carreras, the star of this Christmas concert, had only just returned to his international career after a lengthy battle against leukaemia during 1987/88. He marked his comeback with a hugely successful open-air concert on July, 1988, in front of 150,000 compatriots in Barcelona, where he was born on December 5, 1946. A further series of highly acclaimed concerts emphatically underlined the vocal “resurrection” of a singer few thought would ever perform again.
