Tenor Luciano Pavarotti was miming during his last performance at the winter Olympics in Turin in 2006. Conductor Leone Magiera has revealed the singer's rendition of Nessun Dorma was pre-recorded, as a live performance would have been "too dangerous". Magiera said: "The orchestra pretended to play, I pretended to conduct and Luciano pretended to sing." He added: "It came off beautifully, no one was aware of the technical tricks." He said Pavarotti recorded the famous aria from Puccini's Turandot in a studio in his home town of Modena, and the orchestra pre-recorded its part separately.
