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 well 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. 0 7 there was a period of time where he was a bigger than michael jackson. i thought there was some sort of you know roots do what he's doing so and it's a tenet of. my mother since my son seen in the beautiful barns and
said mom i didn't say that you. know because they don't say that's when i hear your . there was a nervous wreck before a performance and they would always say oh because you know i. will hit the note you know that these the beauty of my profession. he picked the logo ropes you know 3 of the world's greatest hitters on the same stage for the 1st time and with china called me will soon i jumped from 50 feet i he was crushed i just. became completely obsessed by what he could do for others. i learned to love people who were trusting person. i will not exist if i don't trust people. the reason he is crazy. is he
believes it's those. mistakes he. hopes he desires. crashing into. i'll talk about funds i get them every time and my colleague david leavitt's is doing me in the studio to talk more about this documentary that we think gets you in the chest and well 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 think he was singing 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 democratize opera in the way that poverty 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's supposed to give 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 what we can actually see what happens next. is some guy he's never stole. from our strong suit the 2nd people are already out there on bread those people behind could say that we share and sing and there was a noise going on i literally rushed on stage grabbed the marker 5 and i just say i. don't think you are right i
i the 1st person to jump was pushed on who had caught on and started with an open seat so you have brought it down and there was a ripple effect all the way that they deal with. everybody there are brothers down in the consequent or. they fight the little audio you know i'm not the the mahdi. is mean i have never seen a woman like that i mean your for me feel. i would like to dedicate related to. oh he really knew how to access people's emotions didn't need all the work that he did cross over worked with rock and pop stars unbelievable but this film also shows very much just how much he fact that's what he 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 with the cure i have to be better so 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 levitz thank you very much for bringing us that story. pleasing to the eye as well as the palate that's of course the mandate for any high class food a 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 loves bold colors models on their spring pressure portray a runway or bright pink and yellow dress is so it's no wonder that the labels
creations for the 2 star restaurant temptress of munich turned out to be quite the eye catching. last year the fashion designers created uniforms for the entire kitchen and waiting staff. we host a ladies' lunch that each year and at one point we got this idea to make the uniforms which were still all from the eighty's. we had so much fun. we had discovered a curtain in the ladies' powder room that had this print from the seventy's seventy's print and we used it as a stylistic elements that even the men's uniforms meant it was a big hit. design a fashion for restaurant staff the concept is blooming in london the no uniform label specialized in fashion for the catering profession they created 78 different looks for london's luxury rosewood hotel morton to some from denmark analytic i
mean from italy also create designs for the working environment they used to be designers who is a better model and alexander mcqueen in 2013 they founded their own label in paris called. each style needs to suit the restaurant the looks are inspired by the architecture and design of each individual location. like here for the waiters and cooks of a gourmet japanese restaurant in paris the designers match their garments to the interior decoration and worked closely with the owner and coconut so she tanaka is color a concept couldn't do with just any old a brand. it's a nice compliment when the fashion appeals not only to the staff wearing it but also to the customers sometimes we've had the japanese tourists who come to paris to eat who were aware of see the brand heard her somewhere and polls are no significant have either of them by 2 items or something like this attention to
detail is what makes wood couture so special and manufacturers like olga are now extending that same loving attention to the stasi uniforms. an interesting way to make the whole dining experience even more appetizing well that brings us to the end of the show so until next time i was booted from us here in berlin and by.
