I don't think this has been posted here, so:

Opera legend Pavarotti dies at 71

World renowned tenor Luciano Pavarotti has died at his home in the northern Italian city of Modena.

The singer, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, was 71.

His charismatic performances - particularly alongside fellow tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras - helped bring a new audience to opera.

Pavarotti had cancer surgery in July 2006 in New York, five months after his last performance. He had not made any public appearances since then.

He underwent five bouts of chemotherapy in the past year, and was admitted to hospital with a fever on 8 August. He was released two weeks later following diagnostic tests.

Fellow tenor Domingo said he had "always admired the God-given glory" of Pavarotti's voice.

Manager Terri Robson said in a statement that the tenor died at 0500 local time (0400 BST) on Thursday.

"The Maestro fought a long, tough battle against the pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life," she said.

"In fitting with the approach that characterised his life and work, he remained positive until finally succumbing to the last stages of his illness."

How lucky I was to grow up whilst he was still around and witness this legend live on television. Pavarotti will live on in everyone's memories as a truly legendary singer.

RIP Luciano Pavarotti.

I heard he was fighting for his life yesterday. I was hoping he'd return to good health...

RIP Pavarotti, you were one of my favourite opera singers and will always be! :(

He was such a great singer.
Even I listened to him and thought he was good, and I detest that sort of music.

I know it's sad, but he cheated his wife so bad.... >.<

It is a bit weird knowing he's gone though.
