Notes and Editorial Reviews

This DVD celebrates the 75th anniversary of Luciano Pavarotti. Known worldwide as the superstar of stadium concerts and sporting spectaculars, Pavarotti was, without question, a true legend of the opera stage. The thrilling sound of his tenor reached every seat in the house; his vocal technique was impeccable; his stage presence honest and touching.

For the first time, this unique new DVD features Luciano Pavarotti in live opera performances - from his greatest triumphs at the Metropolitan Opera, New York. No other DVD collection offers Pavarotti exclusively in staged performances.

Joining the great tenor are international stars who sang with him throughout his long career, including Renata Scotto and Joan
Read more Sutherland. The performances are conducted by James Levine and Richard Bonynge, who both played roles in Luciano Pavarotti's operatic career.

Includes the first ever availability of the two beloved Tosca arias (Recondita armonia and E lucevan le stelle).


In DTS 5.1 surround sound. Subtitled in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.
