"Luciano Pavarotti: A Life in Seven Arias" is a comprehensive retrospective of the tenor's career: from his youth, to working with Joan Sutherland in Australia, to his storied career. Everything is covered here - you get some little-seen footage, comments from his colleagues, glimpses of his family life - and it is both realistic and tasteful. His crossover attempts, for instance, are discussed critically but with great affection. More than anything else, though, you get Pavarotti's glorious, unforced tenor - from his earliest days in La Fille du Regiment all the way to his final performances. This belongs on the shelf of any Pavarotti-lover. What a great voice he had and how he will be missed.

Luciano Pavarotti blessed the lives of so many. First, with the most glorious voice mankind has ever heard. Secondly, with his great charisma, passion and humanity. I can't give this DVD enough stars. It's a very carefully thought out, loving, poignant depiction of the Great Man and his music, set to seven of his most famous arias. I enjoyed every second of it and will watch it again and again.

He poured his heart and love into everything he ever did and it's revealed this wonderful portrayal.

RIP Gran Tenore - now the angels are blessed, as you blessed us.

I watched this BBC production, and it was awesome. What a life this man had, and how he shared his great talent, with so many. My daughter, Jennifer, and I would listen to him, as we traveled, enjoying the music, but more importantly, his voice. God truly touched him with more than a talent for singing, but with a talent for touching other people's lives.
He is greatly missed.

The DVD gives an excellent view of Pavarottis life - with some of the highlights of his astounishing musical career. There is a fine selection af arias - many of them from the peak of his career - which are performed absolutely brilliantly. So for a good insight to the life of Pavarotti and his music I can absolutely recommend it.

Mr. Pavarotti came at a time that I knew our time with Corelli was limited, and when I heard his voice for the first time on the album King of the High C's, I knew I would many years to enjoy the voice, but fate is what it is...I am very grateful for the time Mr.Pavarotti did have.

This bio did not just "start at the beginning and go to the end". It is a very well-conceived piece--albeit with a rosy spin--created for Pavarotti fans. For the sake of his adoring fans, this piece concentrates on Pavarotti's many positive aspects, dipping back into his history and bringing the viewer up to date with the fully realized star. There is lots of material, some really good singing, lots of conversations, and delightful visuals. You get a sense of perspective. You will enjoy watching this great big fabulous tenor throughout his career.

Back to the rosy spin. This is not an in-depth, comprehensive, fully informative documentary on Luciano Pavarotti. As I said, the many, many positive aspects of Pavarotti are treated, and treated well. The rest of it is touched with a very light hand; no lies; just not the whole truth. We are spared the nitty-gritty that--Who knows?--may have served to increase our appreciation of the man. Life in Seven Arias is not about that. Don't expect to understand Pavarotti; do expect to enjoy him.

In conclusion: I enjoyed this DVD, and will watch it again. Luciano Pavarotti gave his audience a lot of joy in his lifetime. Life in Seven Arias keeps giving that.

I saw this program on PBS and I loved it because we got to see Pavarotti in the various stages of his life----as a young man through his old age and finally his death. He was a handsome young man----slender and attractive-----and with that VOICE....what a combination. It was fun to hear what his collegues thought of him. He probably had his downside like every other human being, but OH! The TOPSIDE!!! He was the ideal Italian tenor in my mind. One of the speakers said that in the opera world, in the mind of the general public, there was Caruso, then Pavarotti. Today we haven't had the opportunity to hear Caruso in person----just some ancient 'bad' recordings, so we have to take the word of everyone who heard him in person. I don't know HOW he could have been better than Pavarotti. As I said: the perfect tenor voice.

"Great" is so often over used, but what else can one say to describe the wonderful voice and artistry of Pavarotti? I bought this DVD shortly after I watched the program on PBS. What an artist the world lost! Sadly missed. This one is a keeper, to enjoy over and over.
