Opera Star Pavarotti Has Passed Away

Luciano Pavarotti, the world-renowned opera singer, died last night at his Italian home after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was seventy-one years old.

Regardless of whether or not one is a lover of opera (I’m not), nearly everyone knows the name of Pavarotti. From his amazing solo work to his collaboration with fellow singers Plácido Domingo and José Carreras as The Three Tenors to his work with other mainstream artists in the nineties like Eric Clapton, U2, and the Spice Girls to the constant mocking he received for his weight problem, Luciano Pavarotti’s fame has extended far beyond the world of opera.
