From the filmmaking team behind the highly-acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years, Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people.
“Pavarotti’s larger-than-life personality shines in almost every scene. The singer’s optimism is contagious, and his schoolboy-like wonder is jubilant. There’s a lot to smile at here.” – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times
Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard puts audiences front row and center for an engrossing exploration of The Voice … The Man … The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world, and this film, featuring history-making performances, intimate interviews, and never-before-seen footage, is an unforgettable portrait of an international superstar whose joyful personality was as big as his talent. (Dir. by Ron Howard, 2019, USA, 115 mins., Rated PG-13)
