The famous late opera star Luciano Pavarotti is to be honored with a Hollywood star at the iconic Walk of Fame on August 24, 2022 at 7065 Hollywood Boulevard in the category of live performance.

Regarded as one of the most prolific opera singers of all time, the Italian singer, who died in 2007, starred in 378 performances at the world’s most renowned theatres.

The late tenor’s daughter, Cristina Pavarotti, will be present at the ceremony and will give a speech. Also in attendance and speaking about the tenor’s career will be conductor James Conlon of the Los Angeles Opera.

During the event, there will also be a presentation of two audiovisual showcases featuring the tenor, including a 1970 performance of Verdi’s Requiem with the Rai Symphony Orchestra of Rome.

There will be a second screening of a 1983 Teatro alla Scala recital of Pavarotti. The recital was accompanied by pianist Leone Magiera. The LA screenings will take place at the Aero Theater on August 24th and at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro on August 25th.

Pavarotti’s 43-year career earned him five Grammy Awards, the Grammy legend award, two Emmy Awards, and the Kennedy Centre Honours award among numerous other accolades.

Luciano Pavarotti, “a gift to the world and a legend for eternity”

From 1961 until 2004, Pavarotti wowed audiences in prestigious venues from the Wiener Staatsoper and the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden to the Teatro alla Scala and the Metropolitan Opera House.

Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame said, “The legendary Luciano Pavarotti, whose voice transcended generations, will always be a gift to the world and a legend for eternity.”

“We are proud to honor this icon and give his fans the opportunity to celebrate him when they visit his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” she added.

The growth of Pavarotti’s audience from 1984 led him to increasingly larger spaces for his performances, including US venues usually intended for pop stars, such as Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl, and Central Park.

In 1990, Pavarotti performed in the Three Tenors concert at the Baths of Caracalla, a show that was broadcast worldwide and viewed by eight hundred million viewers, with the live recording of the evening becoming an all-time best-selling classical music album.

With the support of the Italian Ministry of Culture, there will be a number of events in honor of the tenor on August 24th to August 25th. Events are organized by Albedo Production, Genoma Films, Silvia Bizio, Anna Manunza, and Cecilia Miniucchi among others.

Other groups—such as the Emilia-Romagna Region, the cities of Modena and Pesaro, the Rossini Opera Festival, and Isatex, Marposs, Deisa Ebano, and Calzanetto—are expected to organize events in honor of Pavarotti.
