all that democratic vision of what culture can achieve was shared by luciano pavarotti the legendary italian tenor was renowned and adored for the quality of his voice and for his tireless efforts to bring the rather rarefied world of opera back to the people all now academy award winning director ron howard has made a compelling documentary that allows the opera star who died in 2007 to tell his own story in a way here's a glimpse. 7 there was a period of time where he was a bigger than michael jackson. my father was you already do work your father is doing so i managed to turn to. my mother my son seeing him
in the beautiful gardens and said mom are you say that because you know because they don't say that's when i hear your. it was a nervous wreck before performance and they would always say we could do that i can reassure you hit the note that is the beauty of my profession. he became the global broached. 3 of the world's greatest chatters on the same stage for the 1st time with china called me will soon i am from that piece. he was crushed i just. became completely obsessed by what he could do for others. i learned to love people trusting person. i will not exist if i don't trust people. the reason he is quick. is he leaves
those. mistakes he. hopes he desires. comes crashing. i'll talk about bonds i get them every time and my colleague david leavitt's is joining me in the studio to talk more about this documentary that really gets you in the chest oh my god do not forget your tissues when you go to see this movie and a big part of that emotionality is actually how well director ron howard pairs what's going on in luciano pavarotti's biography with his powerful performance as we see that a lot of the times that he was seeing about things that were actually happening in his own life he was bringing his real life drama and experiences also to his roles as ron howard's and opera is of course the best drama and it's also seen very much as an elite art form that pavarotti could fill these massive stadiums actually one of his performances with the 3 tenors had more than
a 1000000000 viewers worldwide no one democratized opera in the way that pavarotti did and that was really important to him too he grew up in post-war italy in a town where opera wasn't just for the rich it was also for the working class like his family and he really wanted to bring that back and this this comes across particularly in a great scene in the movie. where he supposed to get this open air concert in london but then the skies opened it's pouring down it looks like no one is going to show up. but then well we can actually see what happens next. it was like some kind of snafus dollars. from our straw go to our 2nd hour of people holding up their own breath as people behind could say they were shown saying that there was noise going on i literally rushed on stage grabbed the marker 5 and i just say i really don't think your brother's.
i. i the 1st person to jump it was princess diana who had a call and started with an employee who said tell your brother down and there was a ripple effect all the way that they deal with. everybody there are brothers down and the consequent. cycle of being audio you've gone not the media my. ears mean i have never seen a woman like that i mean your for me feel. i would like to dedicate related to i. i thought he really knew how to access people's emotions didn't need all the work that he did cross over work with rock and pop stars unbelievable but this film also shows very much just how much he gave back that's right here it was really dedicated to doing what he could for people particularly for children in war zones that was one of his favorite causes having grown up in a war zone but of course there was then this other side of him the difficult artist
who was never satisfied with his own voice who always said what some are insecure i have to be better fascinating personality i really think this film is also going to bring him to a younger generation that didn't get to know him while he was still alive let's hope so because it really seems like his presence is missed hitting the theaters in june david leavitt's thank you very much for bringing us that story. well pleasing to the eye as well as the palate that's of course the mandate for any high class food temple and recently many michelin starred establishment are taking that idea one step further and coming up with fashionable outfits for their service and kitchen staff so we checked out some prominent examples of uniforms that elicit a visual. design is for the german fashion label target who holds love bold colors models on their spring pressure portray runway bright pink and yellow dresses so it's no wonder that the labels creations for the 2 star restaurant
