LATEST: Luciano Pavarotti is determined to keep his marriage ceremony a deeply religious and deeply private affair - away from the press.

The opera star announced on Larry King LIVE on Saturday night (27SEP03) his plans to wed girlfriend NICOLETTA MANTOVANI later this year (03), but he insists that's all anyone will know of his plans.

He says, "It will be four people, very sacred. We just baptised my daughter and there were 300 people in the church. This time it will be alone (sic)."
