He always leaned toward the dramatic...dying TWICE in one day does not surprise me. ;)

The Washington Post did a lovely tribute to him. He was a great star. The people in the post below belittled him, but what do they know. He brought audiences to their feet as one, in a spontaneous celebration of his performance. I saw it happen nearly 30 years ago--"Tosca" at the Met. Amazing.

Legend has it that they had to hold up first rehearsal of "La Boheme" at the Met back in 1980 or so because Pavarotti and Renata Scotto were waiting outside in their separate limousines each waiting for the other to enter first. Finally the Met sent out a group which included Anthony Bliss, the general manager, and conductor James Levine and they negotiated a solution where the limo doors were opened simultaneously and Pavarotti and Scotto were escorted together to the rehearsal. It is my favorite modern opera story.

His "Nessun Dorma" still makes me cry whenever I hear it.

He'll be missed.

A very sad loss. But weren't we fortunate to have known and loved his beautiful voice.
Perhaps now he is singing with the angels.

Only if the angels have plenty of Chianti and veal chops!

I've heard many renditions of "Nessun Dorma" but only a handful that send chills up my spine. His was one of them.

Funnily enough, however, my favourite (recorded) performance of his was with U2 and Brian Eno, "Miss Sarajevo." His entrance into the song is just beautiful, and completely fills whatever space you're listening to it in.

Another legend of the opera world, I hope he is not the last.
