He is one of opera's true legends. Now Luciano Pavarotti (and double Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard) are returning to SiriusXM, with the launch of Pavarotti Radio, an exclusive limited-run music channel celebrating the music and influence of the famed Italian tenor. The channel kicks off June 6, 12:00 p.m. ET and runs through June 16 on channel 77 and the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices.

The channel complements the arrival of the documentary Pavarotti in select theaters June 7. Pavarotti Radio will showcase music and recorded performances from the world's most loved tenor of all time, as well as artists he influenced, and interviews and stories from those who knew him, including Nicoletta Mantovani, Luciano Pavarotti's widow, and Howard.

"It is wonderful to be able to partner with SiriusXM on a dedicated channel allowing fans and new listeners alike the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the music of the genius that is Luciano Pavarotti," noted Howard. "Whether getting tuned up to see the film or wanting to continue the experience after leaving the theater, this channel will allow us all to experience Pavarotti wherever and whenever we want."
