One powerful musical statement is perhaps worth a thousand words in memorium. Let us listen to and watch the great Luciano Pavarotti sing his signature aria, Nessun Dorma from Puccini’s Turandot, as his powerful musical statement and, now, memorial.
How can you top that! This aria is what Luciano Pavarotti sang in his final performance, the finale of the Opening Ceremony of the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics. See the wiki for further details, translations of the aria, and description of the great Turandot opera.
Let us offer a pray of thanks to Luciano Pavarotti and the transforming power of great music as it lifts us into new dimensions of praise and gratitude.
