Luciano Pavarotti to be posthumously honoured at Classic Brit Awards

London, Sept 18 (ANI): Opera star Luciano Pavarotti is set to receive a posthumous honour at the Classic Brit Awards.

He was offered the lifetime achievement award six years ago in 2007 but died later that year before it could be presented to him.

His widow Nicoletta Mantovani-Pavarotti will collect the award on his behalf at next month's ceremony, the BBC reported.

The Italian tenor, who became one of the most successful opera stars of all time, died of pancreatic cancer.

The awards take place in central London on October 2. (ANI)
