  • “Pavarotti And Friends” was a series of 10 benefit concerts/events organized in Modena (Italy) from 1992 to 2003 by tenor Luciano Pavarotti and his second wife Nicoletta Mantovani. Proceeds went to humanitarian causes. The concerts featured Pavarotti performing with special musical guests coming from the pop, rock, rap, jazz music world. There was no “Pavarotti And Friends” in 1993 and 1997. The origin of these shows came from Italian singer Zucchero who convinced Pavarotti to record a song (“Miserere”) with him in 1992. Before that, the tenor had never duet with a modern artist. Result was so innovative and successful that more collaborations with modern artists began in September that same year under the name “Pavarotti And Friends”. A compilation album and DVD were released for each edition under London Records and Decca Records. They usually include the whole show without the presentation (sometimes interviews) of the Italian TV host.
  • The photo of Dolores & Luciano Pavarotti used for the advert of the PolyGram VHS was taken during the rehearsals.
  • Dolores later recorded a studio version of “Ave Maria” for “The Passion Of The Christ” film soundtrack (2004).
