Sarah Brightman To Open the Olympics

(EMI) The world's biggest selling soprano, Sarah Brightman, was selected as the sole international performer in a pivotal performance at the opening ceremony of the Beijing 2008 World Olympics. She subsequently will be seen on The Today Show (NBC), Monday, August 11.

Brightman's upcoming Olympic performance confirms her as one of the great theatrical sopranos of our time and fans await her much anticipated 2008 North American Fall Tour. Her first tour since 2004, Brightman will be performing 18 shows in the US, 10 shows in Canada and 4 shows in Mexico.
