Pavarotti plus satellite Q & A GFT

pavarotti

13 July, 2019

From the team behind the worldwide success The Beatles: Eight Days a Week comes two-time Academy Award winning director Ron Howard’s documentary celebrating the life of the beloved opera star Luciano Pavarotti, who sold more than 100 million records in his lifetime. The 1990 World Cup in Italy was the moment opera left the elite and hit the masses. Opera star Pavarotti joined fellow tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras onstage in Rome, watched by 1.4 billion worldwide. Their powerful rendition of ‘Nessun Dorma’ lives on as one of the most popular and famous pieces of music the world has ever heard, and Pavarotti realised his long-held dream of bringing opera into the mainstream.

Ron Howard takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story, going beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself. We get to know the great tenor as a husband and a father, a committed philanthropist, and a fragile artist who had a complex relationship with his own unique talents and unprecedented success.

Followed by a satellite Q&A hosted by Classic FM presenter John Brunning with a panel featuring Nicoletta Mantovani, Katherine Jenkins, Bryn Terfel and the film’s producer Nigel Sinclair.
