Pavarotti at 77: Celebrating the ultimate Verdi tenor

Today would have been Pavarotti’s 77th birthday. As we two days ago celebrated the 199th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi, I’ve decided to start today’s celebration with focusing on Pavarotti as one of the best Verdi tenors of all time.

Here is Pavarotti in one aria, one duet and one trio from the not so well-known Verdi opera Ernani, an opera Pavarotti performed on stage and recorded as well.

Pavarotti recorded Ernani both on audio and on video, and these two recordings are available on Decca CD and Decca DVD.

The first two videos are from the DVD. This was a performance at the Metropolitan opera in New York which was also broadcasted on TV.

Look out for more celebrations of Pavarotti’s 77th birthday!
