Tenors remember ‘a good friend and great poker player’
- 7 September 2007
Opera singers Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras have paid tribute to their fellow tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who lost his fight with pancreatic cancer on Thursday.
The widely admired opera star performed in the Three Tenors concerts for more than 10 years.
Domingo commented of their time on stage together: “On several occasions of our Three Tenors concerts, we had trouble remembering we were giving a concert before a paying audience, because we had so much fun ourselves.”
Carreras meanwhile described Pavarotti as “the man with such a wonderful charismatic personality – a very good friend and a great poker player”.
