Product Overview

On January 20th 2006 musical legend Barbara Cook took the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House for what was an unprecedented event. The Met was presenting, for the first time in its 128 years, a female non-classical singer. Ms Cook had as her special guests four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and the multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban. The evening which required no advertising was sold out of its 3700 seats within five days just by word-of-mouth from the legions of loyal Barbara Cook fans, proving her star power has withstood the test of time.

With a voice The New York Times calls "better than ever" Barbara Cook charms the standing room only venue with classics from Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields, Stephen Sondheim and George Gershwin along with a couple of songs by new talents she adamantly believes in - John Bucchino and Amanda McBroom.

In addition to chilling duets with Josh Groban and Audra McDonald, Barbara stepped back to allow each artist the chance to add a magical solo performance to this truly remarkable event.

Features "Move On" Barbara's stunning duet with Josh Groban, which lifted the audience out of their seats!
