Also brought back by popular demand, Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. From the filmmaking team behind the highly acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, it is directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard, who puts audiences front row center for an exploration of The Voice…The Man…The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews.
“…a warm, emotional and completely involving film about the celebrated tenor.” — Kenneth Turan, LA Times
“Howard adopts a no-muss-no-fuss tone of benevolent civility that feels like a legitimate way to go, keeping Pavarotti’s identity as a singer front and center.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
“This was not a man wanting for friends and his likability floods the film. Twelve years since his death he’s bound to make even more new fans thanks to Howard’s valentine.” — Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
