Pavarotti Dead at 71

318338.jpgLuciano Pavarotti, the bearded opera legend, died early Thursday after a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer. With his noted girth and cheeky duets with pop singers, the 71-year-old tenor was that rare maestro of classical music who was as instantly recognizable around the world as superstars from MTV and the movies.

He was also that rare singer who could entertain even those who did not normally enjoy or understand opera – like me. He will be missed.
