Scully/The World Show

Luciano Pavarotti (#121)

The illustrious Italian tenor, Luciano Pavarotti, shares with us the challenges he faces as a performer, whether with his music, the stage, or his nerves. One will be amazed to discover that the great performer has as many moments of extreme nervousness as he does wonderful music. Pavarotti intrigues us with his view on the extremely "fragile" life of a tenor, and with an intimate account of his pre-performance state of mind. He further delights by recounting how the three tenors originally came together and rose to their present popularity. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
