Everyone in the world have heard about Pavarotti or at least his amazing voice. The Italian tenor enchanted our lives for many years having phenomenal performances. He became the opera’s first global superstar.
Luciano Pavarotti was also famous for his extravagant taste. As a tribute to Pavarotti the Montblanc Patron of Art Luciano Pavarotti Limited Edition, was created specially in his memory.
Luciano Pavarotti managed to make from a performance a living legend. The aria Nessun dorma from Puccini’s Turandot was what transformed opera in something accessible for everyone. Pavarotti was also loved by people because he was a truly humanitarian. He had often organized concerts on which he brought best musicians of all genres to sing for Pavarotti & Friends in order to raise money for vocational and educational projects.
More than this Pavarotti dedicated his free time to nurture young singers with free and private singing lessons.
For this, Montblanc’s master craftsmen, designed the Montblanc Patron of Art Luciano Pavarotti limited edition 4810, representing the black tuxedo Pavarotti used to wore with a white bow tie and white shirt at almost all his concerts. Details like the graceful red lacquer floral pattern that adorns the cone and the turquoise resin cabochon at the base of the writing instrument are a symbol of the Hawaiian shirts Pavarotti liked to wear when he wasn’t on the stage.
Another detail referring to Pavarotti’s eccentric scarves, is the gold plated clip.You will notice five gold-plated rings that decorate the cap of the Limited Edition 4810, being another homage to the five world famous operas, which made Pavarotti so famous. Also the writing instrument is decorated with the bent nail which Pavarotti said it is his lucky charm. The emblem which crowns the instrument, the Montblanc emblem.
The inspiration for this marvel, was the opera Turandot and the aria Nessun dorma the made Pavarotti truly global famous and it also remained his signature performance. The opera is located in China, so this detail was reflected in the black-and-white lacquer dragon and its sparkling red garnet eyed adorning the cap. The cone is made of 750 solid gold and it is beautified with engravings of an Oriental opera motif and the base is adorned with a remarkable faceted garnet.
You can find these limited editions at Montblanc boutiques.
