Luciano Pavarotti

  • October 12, 1935 Modena - September 6, 2007 Modena

Biography

Born in Modena, Italy, Luciano Pavarotti gained his first musical experiences with his city's chorus, of which his father, Fernando, was also a member. The teenage Pavarotti and his father travelled with the "Chorus Rossini" to Wales, and went on to win first prize in the Llangollen international singing competition. This experience fired the young Pavarotti's musical ambitions for life as a tenor. He had originally trained to become a teacher, but, after first studying with Arrigo Pola and then with Ettore Campogalliani, he won the prestigious Concorso Internazionale in 1961 and made his operatic debut as Rodolfo in La Bohème at the Teatro Reggio Emilia that year.
