I am not that big of an opera fan, but I do appreciate talent. There has never been and never will be another like Pavarotti.
Tony is a MASSIVE opera buff. He loves Pavarotti. He would have had a million of his babies, were that possible. He had purchased a ticket to see Pavarotti in June 2006. I was pregnant and teaching, and didn’t think that I would want to see him. Tony paid almost $100 for a nosebleed seat and was determined to see him, even if it meant going by himself. Then, just a couple of weeks before the concert, Pavarotti publicized his cancer and postponed his tour. Tony was given the option to reserve a ticket for the rescheduled concert, which was to take place in October. Unfortunately, we were moving across the country before then and would have a newborn by October, so he reluctantly took a refund on the ticket.
It really is a shame. I wish that Tony would have had the chance to hear such greatness in person.
Rest peacefully, Luciano Pavarotti.
