Director Ron Howard follows the distinguished, legendary tenor over his prolific career. Luciano Pavarotti was beloved for making opera — an elite form — more approachable to the masses, and who dealt with trials and triumphs with the focus of an athlete. Howard captured previously unknown details about Pavarotti.
