From the filmmaking team behind the highly-acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Academy Award-winner Ron Howard puts audiences front row center for an exploration of The Voice...The Man...The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage and cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology.


"Ron Howard's thrilling documentary on Luciano Pavarotti is a must see for opera lovers , and for non-lovers it just might change your tune."
- Deadline
"As Pavarotti demonstrates, while the music was mesmerizing, so was the man."
- Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Ron Howard's documentary doesn't just make you miss the singer. It makes you miss, of all things, a robust music industry."
"Pavarotti shows us why he was such a cultural force, and why nobody has filled the void he left behind."
- The Capital Times
