As many of you might know, Pavarotti’s last performance took place at the Opening Ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino in 2006.
However, Pavarotti’s last public appearance took place in 2007. Pavarotti was interviewed on video on the late night television talk show Porta a Porta on January 16, 2007. The talk show is on the Italian TV channel RAI Uno.
It’s so sad to watch, because Pavarotti looks very sick in this interview. It’s also sad to watch because we know that less than nine months after this interview Pavarotti was no more.
Pavarotti died in his hometown Modena on September 6, 2007.
May he rest in peace! Grazie, Luciano!
Sorry, no subtitles are provided in the video below, but I’m sure you will understand most of it!
