Pavarotti’s Greatest Hits is the opera album we bring you ce soir. This double album only has the side 1 &2 in it. But it’s a keeper. It made a great soundtrack to our packing boxes this weekend. We are moving in less than a week! How exciting! I wish that I was more cultured and could speak as elequently about the great Pavarotti, as I am sure he deserves.. but I’m not. I love “shows” and I love opera but know very little about it. It’s on the bucketlist to see some opera. “He is one of the greatest tenors of his generation. You can’t say anything negative about Pavarotti or all of Italy would rise up and beat you to death!”, thank you husband. Well said. My late wonderful Nana was a HUGE Pavarotti fan. I recall seeing dozens of his albums on her gold stand up LP shelf thing.
Turn UP your speakers! And I’m including a youtube comment I enjoyed about his video “That final look! Pure genius! The white paint mainly on one side of the face reminiscent of the mask in “Phantom of the Opera”, yet another man driven insane by love. I ADORE Pava’s interpretation! Not the sad, pitiable clown, as done by Caruso, but the man actually driven insane, during this aria, by unfaithful love! Bravo ll Primo Tenore! No other before or since, like him”
