Acclaimed director Ron Howard gives us an in depth look at the life and work of opera legend Luciano Pavarotti.
A riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. As Plácido Domingo, one of the world's greatest living tenors and a close of friend of Pavarotti’s, says: “He would just open his mouth, and everything was easy.”
Born in 1935 in Modena, Italy, his career took off when cast as Rodolfo in Puccini’s ‘La Bohème’, in a small regional Italian opera house in Reggio Emilia. He gave his final performance at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, and was diagnosed that year with pancreatic cancer. He died the following year.
This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage.
