Legendary tenor Andrea Bocelli and renowned soprano Renée Fleming will headline a benefit concert and gala dinner at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Los Angeles Music Center on Friday, Sept. 25. The event will celebrate the life and legacy of well-known tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who died in 2007 of pancreatic cancer. The evening will feature the pair performing iconic arias, duets and classic songs with the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, conducted by Eugene Kohn, and a guest appearance by Plácido Domingo.
A highlight of the evening, chaired by Dr. William Isacoff and Barry Tucker, will be the screening of a video of Richard Tucker and Luciano Pavarotti singing together, introduced by Plácido Domingo. Barry Tucker, president of the Richard Tucker Foundation, is producing the concert.
A gala dinner chaired by Goldie Hawn, Steve Kaplan and Ogden Phipps, III, will immediately follow the concert.
Funds raised by the William H. Isacoff, M.D. Research Foundation for Gastrointestinal Cancer will be directed toward pancreatic cancer research at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The proceeds will help fund research in the Gene Expression Laboratory, led by Dr. Ronald M. Evans.
