Pavarotti in Hyde Park


It was billed as „Pavarotti in the Park,“ but Luciano Pavarotti‘s 30th-anniversary concert in Hyde Park this evening could just as well have been called „Pavarotti in the Deluge.“ The Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duchess of York, Prime Minister John Major and his wife, Norma, the composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, the actor Michael Caine and a crowd estimated at 125,000 turned out despite an incessant downpour to hear the 55-year-old Italian tenor sing a selection of his favorite arias to observe 30 years of a sterling career. He was accompanied by the 82-member Philharmonia Orchestra and the 120-voice Philharmonia Chorus.
