Luciano Pavarotti was an Italian operatic lyric tenor who was considered one of the finest bel canto opera singers of the 20th century. Even in the highest register, his voice was noted for its purity of tone, and his concerts, recordings, and television appearances which provided him ample opportunity to display his ebullient personality gained him a wide popular following.
He performed in a number of televised opera broadcasts. In addition to his opera work, Pavarotti also recorded a collection of Italian love songs and a pop album. In 2004 Pavarotti gave his final performance on the operatic stage, although he continued to sing publicly until 2006. His last public appearance was in the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, where he sang his signature aria, “Nessun dorma,” from Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot.
I decided to deal with this topic because just a short time ago was Pavarotti’s anniversary of his debut in 1961 in Reggio Emilia in the play “La Boheme” and from here began the phenomenal career of one of the most famous tenors in Italy and also in the world as he during the his career traveled practically all over the world bringing up the name of Italian music and theater.
