Rest in peace, Luciano

I woke up to the news that Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti has died. He was 71 years old. This man was the demigod of opera of our age and he has so skillfully proven it many times with Nessun Dorma, his signature song.

In memory of Pavarotti, here's when he did Nesssun Dorma for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, his last public performance. Arrividerci, Luciano, e riposa in pace. Tu sei grande e con le tue canzoni vivirai sempre nel nostro cuore. Avevi vinto in questa vita e all'alba vincerai.
