Pavarotti Honored With Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star

On August 24 amidst a number of attendees including his daughter Cristina Pavarotti, granddaughter Caterina and conductor James Conlon, Luciano Pavarotti was honored with a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In front of the star placed at 7065 Hollywood Boulevard that bears the name of her father, great Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who died in 2007 at the age of 71, Cristina Pavarotti stated “It is a tremendous honor to represent my father on this momentous occasion. I wish I could express how much I’d love for him to be here. If I just think back to him, to all he achieved, at the trails he blazed, and at the many emotions given and received, I still feel dizzy. On behalf of myself, my sisters Lorenza, Giuliana, Alice, on behalf of Nicoletta Mantovani and of my daughter Caterina, who’s here with me today, thank you”.

Also present at the ceremony was the Musical Director of the Los Angeles Opera, the American conductor James Conlon, who shared a long professional and personal relationship with the artist and recalled that “His super stardom extended through the globe, far beyond the confines of the opera house. On his way to becoming an internationally recognized personality, he stepped out of the box in a pioneering way”.

Celebrating the memory of Pavarotti for his artistic, philanthropic and humanitarian merits, the City of Los Angeles and Councilmember Joe Buscaino – LA 15th Council District presented the prestigious official recognition “City Resolution.”

Throughout his illustrious artistic career, that included 43 years of stage performances, Luciano helped people discover and love opera by connecting it to a large and transversal audience through his voice and his art.
