(2019, dir. Ron Howard, w/ Spike Lee, Princess Diana, Phil Donahue, Bono)

LIFF 2019 – Closing Night Pavarotti will finish at approximately 8:32pm.

Luciano Pavarotti’s charm, charisma, and impressive ability to hit the high-C earned him a level of renown on par with the biggest pop stars. He brought opera to the masses and in acclaimed director Ron Howard’s inspiring documentary, it is easy to see why. Luciano Pavarotti is one of the most famous tenors in history. His death at the age of 70 left an undeniable void in terms of worldwide exposure of classical music which has not since been filled. Through never-before-seen footage, concert performances and intimate interviews, this evocative documentary laments an astonishing singer as well as the robust music industry of his time. Howard pays homage to the late star, casting a warm and informative light on his life and career with a light-hearted joy, romance, sadness and hope that will make you fall in love with Pavarotti all over again.
