Pavarotti became well known among American audiences through the 1990 PBS music special, CARRERAS DOMINGO PAVAROTTI IN CONCERT -- the first performance given by opera tenors Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras under the baton of conductor Zubin Mehta at the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome.
