Featuring archival clips of Pavarotti’s genre-redefining performances and contemporary intimate interviews with his friends, family and fellow performers, Pavarotti presents a stunningly intimate portrait of the most beloved opera singer of all time—a man whose joyful personality was as big as his talent.
