When I first met Luciano Pavarotti in 1990, it was at The Savoy where I helped his PR team set up a last minute interview. Whilst I was waiting to welcome Pavarotti, I was so surprised to see him walking down the corridor leaning on his bodyguards. Following the interview, I was invited to one of his performances at the ROH and I was so excited. At this point, I was also curious as to how he would perform when he needed support. However, when I saw him on stage the next day, he was unrecognisable. I was blown away by his energy on stage and his memorable performance brought tears to my eyes!!! When I was invited to his dressing room following his performance, I was lost for words and he graciously signed my programme. I then realised, he needed support from his team to preserve his energy for his performances and what an impact that made!
