Notes and Editorial Reviews

Luciano Pavarotti will always be associated with the role of the painter Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca. His interpretations of the arias 'Recondita armonia' and 'E lucevan le stelle' became two of his greatest hits, which he sang at all his stadium concerts.

Specially restored and released for the first time on any format, this remarkable performance presents Luciano Pavarotti the opera star, at the very peak of his stage career.

Filmed live at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, on December 19th, 1978.
