When Pavarotti sang for Mario Lanza. Or notmain
Luciano was 9 years old and this was his first filmed performance.
Or so it says.
UPDATE: That’s the story, at any rate. The only problem is that Pavarotti was 15 when The Great Caruso was filmed in 1951 and the voice is not his. When I first saw the film, I thought the boy to the right of Mario Lanza bore a strong resemblance to the boy Luciano, but that, too, is wishful thinking.
