Luciano Pavarotti will always be associated with the role of the painter Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca. His interpretations of the arias "Recondita armonia" and "E lucevan le stelle" became two of his greatest hits, which he sang at all his stadium concerts.
This release of Tosca marks the 75th anniversary of his birth on October 12th, 1935. Specially restored and released for the first time on any format, this remarkable performance filmed live at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, on December 19th, 1978 presents Luciano Pavarotti the opera star, at the very peak of his stage career.
Pavarotti's co-stars are two internationally acclaimed American singers - soprano Shirley Verrett and baritone Cornell MacNeil - and the production is by legendary baritone Tito Gobbi - best remembered for his Scarpia opposite the Tosca of Maria Callas.
