The new documentary film “Pavarotti,” directed by Ron Howard, reflects on the life and performances of the legendary opera singer, Luciano Pavarotti.

After seeing the film in June, a few Highwood residents and members of the Modenese Society spent their own time reflecting on the Pavarotti that they came to know after he accepted an invitation to perform at the Highwood Recreation Center, or the Highwood Community Center, as it was known in 1980.
