The Pavarotti Tribute Concert

Posted in Home > Highlights > The Pavarotti Tribute Concert

Filmed live at Jordan’s spectacular ancient city of Petra, this star-studded memorial concert was held to commemorate the first anniversary of the great Italian tenor’s death.

An all-star cast of guests including , Placido Domingo, Angela Gheorghiu and Sting join the Prague Philharmonic and conductor Eugene Kohn for what is a joyous celebration of the man and his music. Of particular note is Domingo and Jose Carreras’ emotional performance of De Curtis’ ‘Non ti scordar di me’, Bocelli’s stellar version of Leoncavallo’s ‘Mattinata’, and a final word from Pavarotti himself in a touching recorded performance of  Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’.
