Do you have ambitions of being an opera singer? Well, now’s your chance to prove it to the world, as record label Decca Classics is offering you the chance to win one of 50 Pavarotti-related prizes by making your own recording of Nessun Dorma, an aria from Puccini’s opera Turandot.
You can have a listen to the Pavarotti version of the composition before you lay down your own track, with the Decca website providing you with your own karaoke backing track.
Nessun Dorma became Pavarotti’s signature piece after it became the theme for the Football World Cup in 1990 – and now you have the chance to see how well you bear up under scrutiny, with the competition being launched to coincide with Decca’s release of Pavarotti: The 50 Greatest Tracks.
So who’s going to enter?
