On 6th September 2017, it will be a decade since the passing of the man who was probably the greatest and the most popular of opera singers in history: Luciano Pavarotti. Although he is unanimously credited with having democratized opera, making it accessible to the greatest number. Through this angle, Pavarotti, Birth of a pop star sets out to pay tribute to the man who summed up his credo, obsession and life’s work, in the following way: “They led the public to believe that classical music belonged to a restricted elite. I was the way to prove to the world that was wrong”.
