* PAVAROTTI DEAD AT 71 Opera legend LUCIANO PAVAROTTI has died, his manager has announced. He was 71. The Italian tenor was said to be in a "very serious" condition on Wednesday (05Sep07) night, after falling unconscious. A local TV news station in Modena, northern Italy, reported Pavarotti was on his death bed after suffering kidney failure. Friends and family held a bedside vigil at the singer's home in Modena on Wednesday, but the star died in the early hours of Thursday morning (06Sep07). His death follows a recent spell of ill health - Pavarotti was admitted to hospital last month (Aug07) to undergo treatment for pancreatic cancer, and underwent surgery for cancer last year (06) and has since had at least five rounds of chemotherapy. He is survived by his survived by four daughters, three with first wife Adua and one with second wife Nicoletta Mantovani - who gave birth to Alice in January 2003 - and one granddaughter.
