Luciano Pavarotti

As you might imagine, Pavarotti‘s sad demise was all over the news, and even though his funeral was not a state affair, it was televised so it might as well have been.   The man was a superstar in Italy, and all round the world.  A real opera star, in every sense.

Now, I’m not a great opera fan, but Pavarotti did quite a lot for this form of music.  While purists may grumble that he popularised opera, I hope others might say that he made opera a little more accessible to a wider audience.  That’s a good thing to do in my humble opinion, especially in this rather too materialistic old world.

Bye Mr Pavarotti.
