One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans.
What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century – as long as producer
Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife, Maria, from causing runaway chaos.
