Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007) Born and died in Modena, Italy, Pavarotti was an Italian tenor who was known for his seemingly effortless high Cs during the early stage of his career.
Renata Scotto (b.1934) is an Italian soprano widely admired for both her musical and dramatic gifts. Since retiring from the stage as a singer in 2002, she has turned to directing opera as well as teaching at her own opera academy in Italy and New York.
Here Pavarotti and Scotto sing the duet 'Un di, felice, eterea' from a live performance of Verdi's La traviata. This was on 19 March 1965 at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London.

Ah sì, da un anno.
Un dì, felice, eterea,
Mi balenaste innante,
E da quel dì tremante
Vissi d'ignoto amor.
Di quell'amor ch'è palpito
Croce e delizia al cor.
Ah, se ciò è ver, fuggitemi
Solo amistade io v'offro:
Amar non so, né soffro
Un così eroico amor.
Io sono franca, ingenua;
Altra cercar dovete;
Non arduo troverete
For more than a year.
One happy day
You flashed lightly into my life;
And since then I've lived
In tremulous possession
Of that unspoken love,
The pulse of the whole world,
The torment and delight of my heart.
If that is true, then leave me.
Friendship is all I can offer you.
I don't know how to love,
I couldn't feel so great an emotion.
I'm being honest with you ? sincere …
You should look for someone else,
Then you wouldn't find it hard
To forget me.
