Luciano Pavarotti Has Died

It’s been reported all over the place: Luciano Pavarotti died earlier this morning.

This saddens me, as I’m a big opera fan. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to see and hear him perform live. I have only heard him on recordings. (I’m going to be putting on Puccini’s Turandot, performed by Pavarotti, Sutherland, Caballe, and Guiaurov, conducted by Mehta just as soon as I’m done typing this post. My not-quite-three-year-old son likes to sing “Vincero!”)…Pvarotti’s voice had such a beautiful effortless power.

The abundantly knowledgeable Opera Chic has a very nice tribute to one of the greatest opera tenors.
