Pavarotti in concert with his trademark big white hanky
As you enjoy your Labour Day long weekend, host Alexa Petrenko has a gem of a show coming up on “Sunday Night at the Opera”.
Luciano Pavarotti, one of the greatest lyric tenors in history in his prime, passed away on Sept 6, 2007. His voice and his spirit live on in the imagination of our hearts. We’ll hear him as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La Boheme, the role in which he made his debuts in the 1960s at Covent Garden, La Scala, and the Met; as Tonio of the nine full-voice high C’s in Donizetti’s La Fille du Regiment opposite Joan Sutherland; and as Calaf of “Nessun dorma” fame in Puccini’s Turandot with Zubin Mehta.
Tune in Sunday, September 2, at 9 PM!
