As we investigated in our first Pavarotti in Berlin blog post: Pavarotti sang in Verdi’s opera “Aida” at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (German Opera Berlin) in March 1982 together with the German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
Another singer in this production was the German soprano Júlia Várady who sang the role of Aida to Pavarotti’s Radamès.
Here are both in the act III duet from the opera (in two parts), conducted by Daniel Barenboim in the performance on 22 March 1982. This performance is available on CD.
Great singing in Berlin! But it isn’t over yet, so look out for more blog post on Pavarotti in Berlin! I guess by now you’ve all decided to visit Berlin, right? 🙂
