The Voice

Last night, when I added the post of Paul Potts singing "Nessun Dorma," I had no idea that Luciano Pavarotti was dying.

Pavarotti, who died early this morning of pancreatic cancer at age 71, brought the song to millions around the world. The voice of the Italian tenor was unforgettable.

The photo above of Pavarotti is from a slide show at the NYTimes Website and is credited to Sara Krulwich of the Times. Caption: As Nemorino in "L'Elisir d'Amore" at the Met in 1998, celebrating the 30th anniversary of his Met Opera debut.
