Ahead of UK release, CLASSIC fM catches up with Ron Howard to find out what he learned about the 'king of the high Cs'

Bookmark and Share

Pavarotti, a new biopic by Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code, Apollo 13), is an intimate portrayal of the ‘king of the high Cs'. If, like us, you already know and love Pavarotti for his voice, Howard's film gives you exactly what you want. There's unseen footage of the tenor backstage before performances and you get to see clips of him performing ‘Nessun dorma', both as a soloist and with The Three Tenors. But the film also provides a seldom-seen insight into the tenor's impish character. Howard says: "The people who knew him loved that spirit. It was almost boyish, and he never lost that fascination and appreciation for the world."

The film has an exclusive preview screening with satellite Q&A on Saturday 13 July for one night only across the UK, hosted by John Brunning with Nicoletta Mantovani and other TBC guests. The film is released in UK cinemas from Monday 15 July.
