From the team behind the worldwide success The Beatles: Eight Days a Week comes two time Academy Award winning director Ron Howard’s documentary celebrating the life of the beloved opera star Luciano Pavarotti, who sold over 100 million records in his lifetime. The 1990 World Cup in Italy was the moment opera left the elite and hit the masses. Opera star Pavarotti joined fellow tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras onstage in Rome watched by 1.4 billion worldwide.
Their powerful rendition of ‘Nessun Dorma’ lives on as one of the most popular and famous pieces of music the world has ever heard, and Pavarotti realised his long held dream of bringing opera into the mainstream. Ron Howard takes an intimate approach in telling Pavarotti’s story, going beyond the iconic public figure to reveal the man himself. Created from a combination of Luciano Pavarotti’s genre-redefining performances and granted access to never-before-seen footage, the film gives audiences around the world a stunningly intimate portrait of the most beloved opera singer of all time.
“An entertaining portrait of a generous, funny, larger-than-life figure. And the music is sublime” – EMPIRE
Director: Ron Howard
Starring: Luciano Pavarotti
Hawke’s Bay’s 17th outdoor film festival at the Black Barn Amphitheatre in Havelock North is just around the corner. The 2020/2021 season will run over nine nights from 27 - 30 December 2020 and from 2 – 6 January 2021. eTickets are available to purchase online. At the venue, we can scan barcodes directly from your phone or from your printout.
The Amphitheatre in the foothills of Te Mata Peak is purpose-built for performances and has quickly gained a reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest outdoor venues. It has great acoustics, good sightlines, the best of technology installed and views to die for. Moviegoers can relax back on grassed terraces, sip a glass of wine, nibble on snacks from the in-house caterers or bring a picnic of their own to share with friends. Image by Tom Burstyn
Adult Ticket: $20 + $2 booking fee / $25 at the gate
The Amphitheatre has flat, grassed terraces. You are welcome to bring rugs, pillows and low chairs, but no large beanbags as they take up too much space. High chairs can only be used at the very back of the venue or below the third terrace so that the views of others are not impeded – no exceptions. We thank you for honouring this policy.
Wine, beer, coffee and soft drinks will be available for purchase. No alcohol or other beverages to be brought into the venue. Sealed bottled water is allowed.
