Pavarotti Preview Plus Satellite Q & A. Odeon Leicester Square featured an introduction of the film from director Ron Howard. Watch the video of the Q & A held after the viewing.
The question and answer was hosted by Classic FM presenter John Brunning. On the panel were:
Nicoletta Mantovani, Katherine Jenkins, Bryn Terfel and the film’s producer Nigel Sinclair.
The cinema was full and the audience applauded the documentary.
Two time Academy Award® winning director Ron Howard created the Pavarotti film documentary. He and his team behind the worldwide success of The Beatles: Eight Days a Week. The movie celebrates life of the beloved opera star Luciano Pavarotti, who sold over 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 onstage in Rome. They were Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras. All were watched by 1.4 billion worldwide. A massive success.
Their powerful rendition of ‘Nessun Dorma’ lives on. It is considered as one of the most popular and famous pieces of music the world has ever heard. Pavarotti realised his long held dream of bringing opera into the mainstream. And it worked!
The music is outstanding. Sound quality superb. Don’t miss a sound. Sit back, relax and watch Pavarotti in action. Do you like his style? Was he perhaps a little too heavy? Did he look after his health enough? Was he told there was health problem soon enough?
Ron Howard takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story. He goes beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself. The scenes with Diana Princess of Wales are some of the best. Performing with rock and roll stars place the opera singer on a different level. He introduced himself to the world of pop. Youngsters were queueing for autographs. In the end and at the age of 60 he married a 23 year old student. Back home Italians disapproved and he was prevented from marrying in a church. Instead he tied the knot in an opera house. This did not stop his popularity across the globe.
