End of an era: Pavarotti’s last performance

Saturday night witnessed the end of an era, as Luciano Pavarotti gave his 379th and last performance at the Met, singing in Tosca.  Seated, moving with help from attendants, the performance still ended with a banner from the balcony proclaiming “We Love You, Luciano.”  I wasn’t there, but it’s worth a moment of silence from opera fans nonetheless.
