New York's Central Park will get what La Scala opera buffs didn't Luciano Pavarotti singing in "Elisir D'Amore." The popular tenor was quoted Tuesday as telling the Corriere della Sera newspaper in Milan, Italy, that he expects 150,000 people at the June 21 performance. Pavarotti was recently scheduled to appear in the opera at La Scala but withdrew at the last minute, blaming a cold. There were also reports of differences between the tenor and the conductor. In the Central Park production, American singer Kathleen Battle will play Adina in Gaetano Donizetti's work while Marcello Panni will conduct the orchestra of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, Pavarotti said.
