October is a month for operatic birthdays and celebrations. On October 12, the great Luciano Pavarotti would be eighty-two. It was a life cut short, as are many operatic lives, by cancer. We all know he was one of the greatest tenors – ever.
What is your favorite? I saw him several times, in the Met’s incredible Tosca, Luisa Miller, and in what I think was his best role – L’elisir d’amore.
Unfortunately, this is one of those posts where I end up stopping to listen and I have so many things to do.
