Luciano Pavarotti Cancels Bergamo Music Festival Appearance

December 6, 2006 (7:11 am) GMT
Luciano Pavarotti won't attend this week's Bergamo festival in Italy, an event that was to be his first public appearance since his cancer surgery.

Opera superstar Luciano Pavarotti won't attend this week's Bergamo festival in Italy, it has been confirmed.

Pavarotti actually was expected to attend the Bergamo music festival Wednesday Dec 6th to accept the prestigious Donizetti prize, given in recognition of his interpretations of the opera composer's works throughout the world.

"Maestro Pavarotti's first public appearance since undergoing surgery will, in fact, be at a major charity event in 2007, details of which are to be released soon," his London-based manager, Terri Robson, said in a statement Tuesday Dec 5th confirming her client inability to show up at the event.

The singer would subsequently continue his Farewell Tour next year.
