Coming this June: A movie about the one-and-only tenor Luciano Pavarotti

Luciano Pavarotti

The trailer to what may very well be the movie of the year for opera lovers has dropped and it’s all kinds of good news.

Since the tenor of tenors died in 2007, the world of opera performances has been left somewhat void.

Of course, there’s the likes of Jonas Kaufmann, Diego Torre and basically the entire cast of Opera Australia, but The Pav was different.

The movie tells the tale that not many know about the larger-than-life superstar.

We all know he put opera on the map, had a look all his own and a voice you can recognise within the first few bars, but who was the man himself?

That’s a lot about what the movie sets out to tell the story of.

The movie named Pavarotti is a compelling look at the life of an icon who brought opera to the people. Academy Award-winner Ron Howard gives audiences a front row seat for an exploration of The Voice… The Man… The Legend.

Out on Decca records from 7 June 2019.
