Ron Howard's new Pavarotti doc makes billboard: 'upcoming music-driven movies' list

Bookmark and Share

Ron Howard's latest project documents the life of famed opera tenor Luciano Pavarotti, with testimonials from Bono and Pavarotti's Three Tenors compatriots, while newly available archival clips feature everyone from Nelson Mandela to Princess Diana. Howard on opera's storytelling power: "I thought you'd respect Pavarotti so much more if you understood what it takes to actually achieve what he could achieve. [I wanted] to use the drama of those arias to help tell his story. We could almost create an opera about Pavarotti by using those arias. That was an organizing principle for me."
