Luciano Pavarotti (October 12, 1935 – September 6, 2007) was an Italian tenor and one of the most popular contemporary vocal performers in the world of opera and across multiple musical genres. Known for his televised concerts, media appearances, and as one of the Three Tenors, Pavarotti was also noted for his award-winning charity work for raising money on behalf of refugees and the Red Cross.

Pavarotti's career began uneventfully performing in opera houses throughout Europe, but broke out after a performance with well-established soprano Joan Sutherland, who invited the young tenor to join her in touring internationally. By 1977 Pavarotti had become known worldwide, famed for the power and effortlessness of his upper register. His "high C" would become a trademark throughout his career.

Pavarotti was launched into popular culture largely after a performance of Nessun Dorma for the opening ceremony of the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy. The first of the famed Three Tenors concerts was held on the eve of the final match of the tournament in which Pavarotti performed together with fellow star tenors Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. Through this and future performances, Pavarotti would become particularly known for bringing hits previously confined to the opera world to a much wider audience. This was then combined with appearances in advertisements and concerts with pop stars in which Pavarotti further spread his influence. Unlike many crossovers, however, Pavarotti always maintained his reputation in the opera world as supreme in his field.

Ci hai lasciati desolati,
avendoci insegnato
che in questa valle di lacrime
il bello è la verità
e la verità è il bello.
Sei ora faccia a faccia con la Verità il Bello la Bontà.
Sei ritornato al punto
da dove il viaggio cominciò,
per cantare e ballare in eterno.
La tua memoria rimarrà
con noi come il sapore del
buon vino dopo la gran celebrazione.
Riposi in pace, arrivederci e
