The French tenor Roberto Alagna has a new album out entitled “Ma Vie est un Opéra” (“My life is an opera”). In a promotional video Alagna talks about his respect for Pavarotti and what he learned from the great man.
In the video Alagna talks in French, but his new album is just released on Deutsche Grammophon CD, download and streaming.
NB! Major update: After I posted this post Roberto Alagna published a transcript and translation in English of the video on his Facebook page! Read it here if you don’t understand French, but watch the beautiful video first!
In the bonus video below Alagna and several other opera stars sing together with Pavarotti at his 40th anniversary concert in Modena, Italy in 2001.
