See the world’s most loved operatic tenor with brand new eyes, as Academy-Award winning director Ron Howard shines a spotlight on Luciano Pavarotti. Featuring never-before-seen footage, concert performances and intimate interviews!
From the team behind the worldwide success The Beatles: Eight Days a Week comes two-time Academy Award® winning director Ron Howard’s documentary celebrating the 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 Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras onstage in Rome watched by 1.4 billion worldwide. Their powerful rendition of ‘Nessun Dorma’ lives on as one of the most popular and famous pieces of music the world has ever heard, and Pavarotti realised his long-held dream of bringing opera into the mainstream. Ron Howard takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story, going beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself.
Thanks to a partnership with Decca Records and unique access to the Pavarotti family archives, home videos, behind the scenes and extensive live music footage, we see Pavarotti’s personal story emerge: from his humble beginnings in Northern Italy through to global superstardom. We travel the world with Pavarotti. We get to know the great tenor as a husband and a father, a committed philanthropist, as well as a fragile artist who had a complex relationship with his own unique talents and unprecedented success.
Screening at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Saturday 13 July, 6:45pm, this special screening will feature an introduction from director Ron Howard plus special guests, including a Three Tenors aria remastered for the first time (ever!) on the big screen. The documentary will then be followed by a satellite Q&A with special guests.
