Description:
(1935-2007) Italian operatic tenor, one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time. Made numerous recordings of complete operas and individual arias, and established himself as one of the finest tenors of the 20th century. One of "The Three Tenors" (with Plácido Domingo and José Carreras), became well-known for his televised concerts and media appearances. Pavarotti was also noted for his charity work on behalf of refugees and the Red Cross, amongst others. Began his professional career as a tenor in 1961 in Italy. He earned valuable experience and recognition touring Australia at the invitation of Joan Sutherland in 1965. Made his US debut in Miami soon afterwards and his position as a leading lyric tenor was consolidated between 1966 & 1972, when he first appeared at La Scala and other major European houses. In 1968, he debuted at the Metropolitan Opera as Rudolfo in Puccini's “La bohème”. At the Met in 1972, as Tonio in Donizetti's “La fille du régiment”, he earned the title "King of the high Cs". Celebrity beyond opera came at the 1990 World Cup in Italy with performances of Puccini's "Nessun dorma" from “Turandot”, and as one of "The Three Tenors" in their famed first concert on the eve of the final match. Appearances in advertisements and with pop icons in concerts furthered his international celebrity. His final opera performance was at the Met in March 2004; the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin saw Pavarotti on stage for the last time, performing "Nessun dorma”. 10 x 8 color SP in costume as Canio/Pagliaccio in Leoncavallo’s “Pagliacci” with large bass drum.
