Come Fly With Me

Forty-six years ago this month, Francis Albert Sinatra performed at the Teatro Lírico in Palma de Mallorca in 1964. During the same year, or thereabouts, Ol’ Blue Eyes acquired a property in the East of the island, near Cala d’Or. Rumour has it that he never ever spent a night at his prized possession, but a caretaker couple was employed all year round for over thirty years, even beyond May 1998, when the singer/actor died in Los Angeles.

The song Come Fly With Me was written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy van Heusen for Frank Sinatra, and was the title track of Sinatra’s 1958 album of the same name.

Come Fly with Me is also a musical spectacle starting its second year at the Gran Casino de Mallorca tonight, March 20th, at 21h30. In the show, Frank Sinatra is impersonated by Chris Mann. Performances are offered on a weekly basis from now until October 2010. Tickets are available at 30 €, 45 €, 55 € and 99 € by telephone (971.130.411) or online (comeflywithme.com).

The photo was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of sinatra.com. Thank you very much. The photo shows Sinatra recording Great Songs from Great Britain in London with conductor Robert Farnon in 1962.

  1. We are 4ESO students from the IES Ramon Llull (in Palma de Mallorca), we are using this blog for our English lessons, and we found out very interesting things, thanks for your page. We, specially Nadir and I, are looking at this post, and it caught our attention because we love the music and Frank Sinatra, and we didn’t know that he comes to Mallorca forty-six years ago to perform at the Teatro Lírico, and also we didn’t know that Come Fly with Me is also a musical spectacle starting its second year at the Gran Casino de Mallorca, that is a place that we go usually to see concerts, and if we had lived in this times, like we live now, we would have gone for sure. The photo, also caught our attention, is very expressive, and original, in this image we can see the art and the magic in the face of this idol, the first impression that we had when we saw this photo, was.. life, this image suggest music, and a mix of music and life.. is.. live music. Frank Sinatra was in Mallorca, and with him, his live music we should be proud.
