5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Pavarotti September 27, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After reading Joshua's review, I ordered this DVD, which was every bit as magnificent as reported ~ only moreso. Pavarotti's charming smile as he conveyed (and translated into English) his thoughts on his music and his family, sharing childhood memories, and discussing the development of his career was captivating. Seeing the actual video of Pavarotti as a young man, visiting the home in Modena where he was born, singing with his father, interviews with his soccer friends and his sister were especially touching. Watching his boyish playfulness as he recalled tender moments, or the incredible intensity and concentration when he reached those high C's, then watching him as he watched himself in early performances ... those eyes, that smile, that energy ... make me doubly happy that I bought this wonderful disk. We were also reminded of his annual Pavarotti and Friends concerts in Modena to raise funds benefiting the children of war-torn countries: he gave so much to this world. This man had such an immense heart, full of love, music and life, that while we weep for his loss, we cheer to have been blessed to have heard his voice in concert. He was the most superb tenor ever! I LOVED this man and I LOVE this DVD, documenting and honoring the Perfect Pavarotti. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nessun dorma (No one shall sleep) October 21, 2008
By Bentley
Format:DVD
This DVD is superb. If you ever wondered about Luciano Pavarotti and loved his melodious tenor voice and the beautiful aria Nessun Dorma; you will find that Pavarotti is very much alive in this production and what a production it is.

I was literally spell bound. Michael Parkinson had interviewed this legend, Ian McKellen was the narrator and Francis Hanley and Adam Sweeting spent twelve months making this film and discovering amazing details about their subject's life and his roots in Modena, Italy which were very strong even till the end. The year that this production was made was the year Pavarotti's youngest daughter was christened, when he married his personal assistant Nicoletta Mantovani and he gave his farewell performance in New York City at the Met.

This was a BBC Arena film and it aptly captured a truly amazing portrait of a brilliant virtuoso at age 70. Sweeting and Hanly stated, "We wanted to explore the texture of Pavarotti's life as he contemplated the final phase of his career. We sat in his living room while he watched his favourite football team, Juventus, on TV, and tried to understand the rules of his favourite card game, Briscola. He talked about how much he owes his father, an enthusiastic amateur tenor, and discussed other great tenors of history. Even ten years wouldn't have been enough to find out everything about Pavarotti, but we got most of the answers we wanted."

Indeed they did. I have never seen such a wonderful intimate view of the man. They traced his life from its humble beginnings and that of his family; their roots, where he lived and we even saw a very touching duet performed by both father and son in Italy.

"Pavarotti, the Last Tenor," provides the viewer with a unique opportunity to go "behind the scenes" and into the life of the century's biggest name in classical music. The commentary from Pavarotti's personal friends and family from Italy and various colleagues such as former manager, Herbert Breslin, Roberto Alagna, and Bono of U2 are especially interesting. Other documentaries about this prolific figure, of which there are many, have concentrated purely on the voice or the career of Luciano, but this DVD's subject is the last moment in the career as well as personal life of a superstar. You see and hear about all the events which made the tabloids and press including Pavarotti's second marriage to his secretary, Nicoletta Mantovani, the christening of their daughter, Alecia, and the onslaught of rhetoric proclaiming the "degredation" of Pavarotti's voice. To paraphrase former general director of the Metropolitan Opera, Joseph Volpe, I would have to agree "I would have rather heard Luciano on a bad day than most any other tenor on a good day." I especially enjoyed the special feature on the DVD with a personal interview of just Luciano. He speaks about every tenor from Caruso and Gigli to di Stefano and Corelli to Lanza and Domingo to Alagna and Bocelli. For any lover of Luciano Pavarotti, the man and the voice, this is a perfect gift.

This DVD is delightful! There is so much to love about the two hours of pure joy. All the interviews are very interesting and the one with Bono (U2), well, I loved him as he genuinely spoke of the Maestro. He was so honest and told of his love for the Maestro. We loved Pavarotti so much. I miss him even though I never saw him in person still he is missed. I try to buy as many of his CDs and DVDs as I can afford. He sings Nessun Dorma at the end and I cry. I always cry even though I know what the words mean.....I still cry. I am thoroughly in love with Luciano. RIP my friend.......RIP! You are the BEST forever!
