Ron Howard delivers a 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 (following his The Beatles: Eight Days a Week) takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story, going beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself.
