Viva Pavarotti!

Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the great male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. While magic was created when Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras met onstage and became the Three Tenors, Pavarotti's fame hit new heights with his annual Pavarotti and Friends concerts, joining with prominent pop stars such as Liza Minnelli, Stevie Wonder, Bono, and others, to raise the profile of classical music. At this special concert, our tenors sing Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, Mamma, as well as popular American standards. Join us in celebrating the superstar tenor and his influence on the music world.

Notes on this season:

  • As you know, we are remodeling the performing arts center to accommodate patrons with disabilities. By revamping our venue, changes to the theater's seating, concession, box office, restrooms, lighting and sound will be noticeable.
  • QPAC remains fully committed to pursuing the completion of our work in a safe, diligent and reasonable manner under the current circumstances. However, as with most construction projects throughout the City, we have encountered certain delays as a result of this pandemic. Additionally, due to these delays, we are now dealing with the cumulative effect on the project. The impacts include labor shortages, material shortages and significant delays in lead times as a result of factory closings across the globe. At this time, while it may not be possible to quantify the delay, I can assure you that we are evaluating all options to minimize and mitigate the impact to this special project.
  • It is our hope, that we will open our new theater in the spring of 2022, and host our spring events in this miraculous space.
  • Our spring shows will go on sale once we are sure of the location for each presentation. Restrictions on tickets, refunds and exchanges will remain in effect. Specific seats purchased will be reserved and honored at the location for each event. You will be seated in the seat you purchase on-line.
  • Fear not, our beloved ballet and opera programs will resume, upon the completion of the renovation to our theater.
  • We will continue to keep you informed. Your support is greatly appreciated as we work our way through this unprecedented challenge.
