Sarah Brightman came to Moscow as a part of her Harem World Tour. On the 15th of September 2004 she gave a show at the Olympic Stadium. Euro Entertainment was the local promoter of the Moscow show.
The Harem World Tour and the Moscow show followed the release of the Harem Album. Brightman went for an Arabian style as seen in the album’s theme of myth and fantasy. Although it has an inclination towards her signature operatic performance, the album encompasses dance-oriented and uptempo styles in keeping with a celebratory motif. In contrast to the classical crossover music style that framed her previous releases, Harem showcases a wider range of genres, exploring World music-related styles, such as Arabic and Indian music. The album became Brightman’s first top 10 album ever in Japan and debuted in Canada at No. 7. It topped the US Top Classical Albums chart for seven consecutive weeks. With Harem, Brightman became the only artist ever to have simultaneously held the No. 1 spot in Billboard ’s Classical and Dance charts.
