Land of music & opera singers

Modena

Modena has always had an extraordinary relationship with music, which has grown through its schools, music institutes, its theatres and events, its love for singing and opera. Thanks to this vocation, this land has produced and welcomed high calibre names such as Raina Kabaivanska, Mirella Freni and Luciano Pavarotti, known as "The Maestro".Modena’s opera tradition is kept alive today with the rich program offered by its TEATRO COMUNALE Luciano Pavarotti (1838). The town is also the seat of important music and singing schools such as the CUBEC and the Master classes by Raina Kabaivanska at the Vecchi-Tonelli Musical Institute. In this region there is also a long-life choral music tradition, also young Luciano, together with his father Fernando, used to sing in a choir, the Corale Rossini, still active today.

CASA MUSEO LUCIANO PAVAROTTI
Luciano Pavarotti wasborn in Modena on 12 October 1935. Just outside the town you can visit the Casa Museo Luciano Pavarotti, the residence in which the Maestro lived the final years of his life. A tour of his home will bring his memory alive and let visitors familiarize with his daily habits. You’ll also find his most famous theatre costumes, the photos and videos that marked his artistic career, the countless awards and honours, the relics of a career that spanned over forty years in the opera theatres of the whole world. Pavarotti died on 6 September 2007 and his funeral ceremony was held in Modena cathedral, he now rests in the cemetery of Montale Rangone just a few km from Modena.
