For those who missed the live import CD of Celine Dion's June 1999 sellout concert at the famed Stade de France coliseum, this DVD-Video is a real treasure. Au Coeur du Stade offers fans the opportunity to hear what they missed, as well as see the spectacle of Dion's two-year-long Let's Talk About Love tour—kind of. While the DVD-Video contains striking performances of some of her finest English-language hits—"To Love You More," "The Power of Love," "I'm Your Angel," and, of course, "My Heart Will Go On"—it also features nine French selections among its 19 tracks. Thus, it's likely that this collection will appeal primarily to serious fans in the U.S. Among the standout DVD extras is an additional 75 minutes of highly entertaining video footage showing Dion in the studio recording portions of two albums—S'il siffisait d'aimer and Let's Talk About Love, and working with such collaborators as the Bee Gees, Barbra Streisand, George Martin, and Carole King, that illuminates the elegance, warmth, and dogged focus that have catapulted Dion to worldwide celebrity. This is the singer's only concert thus far on DVD and a fitting testament to her star power as a consummate show business entertainer. Distributed by MSI in the U.S.—CT
