The One Where Pavarotti Says Goodbye…

…for good. He’s not retiring like Solksjaer did, but Luciano Pavarotti, one of the greatest and perhaps the most successful opera performer ever, passed away at 5 am, last Thursday, in his home in Modena, Italy.

Well, I have to be honest. I don’t really listen to operas or anything close to that on a frequent basis, my only memory of remembering a opera song would be “Time To Say Goodbye”, and it’s not even by Pavarotti, it’s by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman. Though I have a bit of a memory, when I was a kid I used to watch Pavarotti perform live on the television, and my parents would be like… “Tseng, turn that off! What is that?”, but I’m just taken aback by the serenity, the power and the fluidity of Pavarotti’s performances…

Pavarotti had passed away due to a long term fight with pancreatic cancer, which he suffered about a year ago. He was surrounded by his wife and his four daughters when he had passed on… a rather peaceful way to end his remarkable career and 71 years of life.

Here’s to Luciano Pavarotti (October 12, 1935 – September 6, 2007). May your works be remembered for times to come.2007_09_06t012232_450x315_us_pavarotti_health.jpg

  1. I was pretty shocked at the news. Had no idea that he was unwell. What a waste for humankind.

  2. Yeah… it is a sad thing. Btw, if you’re reading this nyx, what church are you from? You mentioned you’re involved in some church camp or something… I’m assuming you’re in a church or something?
