Great tenor of contemporaniety, “King of the high C’s” – Luciano Pavarotti was one of the most favourite and popular opera singers of the 20th century,

Pavarotti became famous for his perfect vocal skill. His voice was recognized by critics as a phenomenal instrument, one of prodigies of nature which appears once in a blue moon.

Luciano Pavarotti performed at the best venues of the world. He mainly sang in classical Italian operas (Donizetti, Bellini, Verdi, Puccini). Parts of Nemorino, Radames, Tonio in The Daughter of the Regiment by Donizetti, Richard in A Masked Ball by Verdi were among his famous parts.

In the 1990-s the singer gave concerts at stadiums and parks so that hundred thousand listeners could attend them. He wanted operatic art to be available for people who visited opera houses rarely or who have never crossed its threshold. Pavarotti’s joint performances with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras always gained great success.

“No one is fated to live eternally. Only music will never die. My music. I strongly hope that.” – Luciano Pavarotti mentioned once. His music still lives. Confirming this statement numerous music lovers are fond of his creative work at present.

Art-project “Tenors of the XXI century” will sing opera arias and Italian songs from great singer’s repertoire. Participants of the Art-project “Tenors of the XXI century” Alexander Bogdanov, Alexander Zakharov, Maxim Paster, Alexander Skvarko, Mikhail Urusov are soloists of the Bolshoy Theatre of Russia, the Novaya Opera Music Theatre named after E.
