Tenor Luciano Pavarotti will lead a group of stars in performing with the New York City Opera orchestra in a benefit for Lincoln Center. Also appearing at next Monday’s gala will be Mariella Devia, Kallen Esperian, Shirley Verrett, Pietro Ballo, Thomas Hampson, Sherrill Milnes and Ruggero Raimondi. The artists will perform arias, duets and ensembles with the orchestra. Afterward, they will join guests for a supper party on the promenade of Avery Fisher Hall, which will be decorated as a Renaissance garden of an Italian palazzo with troubadours in medieval costumes. Proceeds of the black-tie event will benefit the center’s Great Performers Series.
