In memory of Luciano Pavarotti

Opera legend Luciano Pavarotti has died aged 71. He had pancreatic cancer. The Italian tenor is credited with bringing new audiences to opera and his rendition of Nessun Dorma, which was the official song for the 1990 World Cup.

Pavarotti was one of the best voices. Although I can’t understand the words of his singing I can be swayed by its melody. His voice was a music crowning the melodies of the musicians who accompanied him.

He maintained the popularity of the opera when modern genres of music became dominant. He was an illustration of Italy’s best art.

Pavarotti is now with Angels while he left the world a wealth of angelic voice that soothes the troubled souls. He will be remembered as an opera genius. He will surely be ranked among immortal music giants like Mozart and Bach, whose music through time become more and more inspirational for many. The loss of Pavarotti isn’t just for Italy but for all opera lovers, especially those who were lucky to attend his singing and to feel at the end that they had been transported to a different world full of inspiring melody.
