Luciano Pavarotti was an Italian operatic tenor who lived from 1935-2007. He made his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1968 and went on to perform in 379 performances, 357 of which were full opera productions. His only attempt at film was the 1982 movie Yes, Giorgio. Along with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, Pavarotti is mostly widely known for being a member of the popular opera singing group, the Three Tenors. He was an advocate for humanitarianism and received countless awards for his fundraising efforts for multiple charities. He collaborated with numerous musical icons such as Bono, Sting, Michael Jackson and Sir Paul McCartney. Pavarotti holds two Guinness World Records, the greatest number of curtain calls (165) and the best selling classical album of all time, Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti: The Three Tenors in Concert.
