Opera legend Luciano Pavarotti has died at age 71, as his health deteriorated to a "very serious" condition after he fell unconscious; he passed away at his home at 5 a.m. local time. The Italian tenor's health took a turn for the worse following his recent hospital stay to undergo treatment for pancreatic cancer, and, on Wednesday, a local TV news station in Modena reported Pavarotti was on his death bed after suffering kidney failure. Friends and family of the 71-year-old singer held a bedside vigil at his home in Modena, located in northern Italy. A spokesperson for the University Policlinico hospital, where the singer was previously treated, refused to comment on the status of his health. Pavarotti underwent surgery for cancer last year and had at least five rounds of chemotherapy. In addition to his innumerable opera roles, Pavarotti also starred in the 1982 film Yes, Giorgio and won an Emmy award for his 1985 appearance on the PBS Great Performances series.
