Pavarotti on stamps

Pavarotti’s solar eclipse concert in Romania in 1999

On 11th August 1999 a total solar eclipse occurred which was visible in parts of Europe and Asia.

One of the countries was Romania. On that very same day Pavarotti held a concert in the Romanian capital Bucharest celebrating this solar eclipse, a concert also known as Pavarotti’s solar eclipse concert.

A stamp picturing Pavarotti was also issued in Romania to mark this occasion.

Here is Pavarotti singing O sole mio from that concert! It’s only natural that he sang that song! I’m afraid I haven’t found any more clips on YouTube from that concert!

Anyhow: Enjoy! 🙂
