Remembering Pavarotti upon news of his death.
If you have ever heard the aria Nessun Dorma, chances are it was the late Luciano Pavarotti singing it – it was his staple song. I was very fortunate to have seen maestro live during the summer of 1993 in The Great Lawn of Central Park.
Having gotten there at 3 pm for a 7 pm start, I was up by the stage. Like when you’re around other great talents, you can feel their presence. Central Park is a very special place. And it was more so that evening. Luciano sang to the back of the park and he didn’t need the mic. My friends and I were speechless after the concert.
Here is that classic performance of Nessun Dorma from the Great Lawn in Central Park.
