CELEBRATING LUCIANO PAVAROTTI
Saturday 2nd December 2017 – 6.00PM to 8.00PM
Venue: Cross Street Chapel, Cross Street, Manchester M2 1NL
Admission: members £ 1.00 non-members £ 3.00
On 6th September 2007 Pavarotti lost his battle against cancer and died in his home in Modena. After 10 years of his passing, he’s still remembered and still loved as he was when he was alive. Today Roberto Mobili e Liliana Foligno-Smith will help us to remember the voice that for many is the voice of the greatest tenor in the history of opera.
Come along for a special gathering to celebrate the ‘Maestro’ and to exchange the Season’s greetings over a glass (or two) of prosecco and a slice of panettone or pandoro.
