Many opera singers, regardless of their nationality, sing a variety of operas in many different languages, but Pavarotti was one whose heart, and art, remained firmly planted on his native soil. He did sing the occasional French opera (Manon and Les Huguenots), but almost always in Italian translation; the one Mozart opera he excelled in, Idomeneo, was written in Italian. Otherwise, he exclusively sang the folk and popular songs of Italy and the familiar operas of the great Italian composers, especially Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, and Puccini.
