Ron Howard’s a versatile chap. Among other things, he’s given us Happy Days as Richie Cunningham, a Star Wars adventure and now a look into the life of great tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

The man led an extraordinary life, and despite being lauded for his singing, was wracked with self-doubt.

The trailer below gives us some brief insight into the man, with classic interview clips interspersed with new footage of commentary from the likes of U2’s Bono and fellow tenor José Carreras.

Even if you’re not into opera, just try to get through *that* note that Pavarotti hits in Nessun Dorma and not have a tingle go through you.

In US cinemas early this June, we’re waiting on a confirmed Australian release date for Pavarotti.
