Pavarotti: A Life In Seven Arias

Season 34, Episode 1 of 9

When Luciano Pavarotti died in September, 2007, the world lost one of the greatest voices in all of music. In celebration of Pavarotti's peerless vocal talent and extraordinary international impact, this performance documentary looks back over his legendary career, utilizing the arias with which he was most closely associated as a narrative framework. From his humble origins in Modena, Italy, A Life in Seven Arias follows "the King of the High C's" meteoric rise, spanning through his London debut in La Boheme, his triumph in La fille du regiment, and his iconic rendition of "Nessun Dorma." In addition to a treasure trove of classic Pavarotti performances, also featured are new and archival interviews with many of the tenor's friends and colleagues, including Dame Joan Sutherland, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, and Juan Diego Florez.
