Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the great male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. The 50th anniversary of the launch of Pavarotti's of meteoric international career is celebrated in Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages, airing in December on THIRTEEN's Great Performances (check local listings).

In New York, THIRTEEN will air the special Saturday, November 30 at 6:30 p.m.

This one-hour program includes "Nessun Dorma" and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigolettoand Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "La mia canzone al vento," and audience favorites "O Sole Mio" and "Torna a surriento"; as well as popular duets with Bono,Sting, and Eric Clapton.
