The song may be as much a cliche as the Maestro himself, but the song and the singer owe each other much of their current popularity. Its title Nessun Dorma translates as "let no one sleep", as though anyone could sleep while this thundering aria is being sung. It comes from the opera Turandot.
The song was used as the theme of the 1990 World Cup and had long been associated with Pavarotti before he made it even more famous.
