We are seeing a lot of feature films made on the legendary icons of music, with Bohemian Rhapsody doing fine for itself and Rami Malek picking up an award for it. Classical music artists live too are being fast documented into feature films, such as Tom Volf’s Maria By Callas was released last year. It was met with a huge response among opera fans all over the world. The film wasn’t an easy job to do; it took four years of painstaking research, minus the rest.
Soon, we are to get another full-length feature film documenting Luciano Pavarotti, who sang in Manila in 1994. The movie will be directed by Ron Howard, of the famous ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘The Da Vinci Code.’ Back In 1982, Pavarotti was seen as the leading star of the romantic comedy, ‘Yes, Giorgio,’ which was released in Manila, shortly.
Trailer for Pavarotti released back in February of 2019; it featured clips from the iconic Opera star’s performances, plus never-before-seen footage. We saw the clip of ‘The Three Tenors’ performing ‘Nessun Dorma’ at the World Cup. One of these tenors was Plácido Domingo, a close of friend of Pavarotti’s, also seen in the trailer. Trailer 2 features Pavarotti’s solo rendition of the Puccini aria. An official trailer came out about two weeks ago. Here watch:
The Opera icon was born in 1935 in Modena, Italy. He soared as he was cast as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème, that happened in a small regional Italian opera house – the Teatro Municipal, Reggio Emilia. The legend performed at last in 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, a year later he passed away due to pancreatic cancer.
Pavarotti is all set for the UK to release on 15 July. 2019.
