Over 7,000 fans flocked to the RDS to see the Italian maestro's one-night performance.

The world famous tenor Luciano Pavarotti sang in Dublin on 3 April 1990, for the first time in over a decade. He was backed by the National Symphony Orchestra in the RDS and 7,000 people attended.

'An Evening with Pavarotti' was organised by the Dublin Grand Opera Society. Tickets for the event ranged in price from £25 to £300.

Reporter Teresa Mannion speaks to members of the audience who attended a VIP reception. Guests included Gay Byrne, Desmond O'Malley and Jeananne Crowley.

Pavarotti claims that Dublin holds a special place in his heart as it was at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin where he made his international debut in the 1960s. This was the break that launched his career.
