Giro d’Italia with Pavarotti (2): Verona

The Giro d’Italia will start and finish in the Italian city of Verona today. There’s no better way than to mark this with a Pavarotti performance from the outdoor Roman amphitheatre, the Arena di Verona, in the city centre of Verona. Pavarotti sings the wonderful aria “Cielo e mar” from Ponchielli’s opera La Gioconda in a live performance from the Arena di Verona in the summer of 1980. And because Big Luciano is so good at what he do, he sings this aria twice!
