Luciano Pavarotti underwent hip surgery and was recuperating at his villa on the Adriatic Sea, the tenor's spokeswoman said.
He's "doing great, he's recovering well from the operation to his hip," spokeswoman Renata Meroni confirmed for Italy's ANSA news service.
Pavarotti, 62, was recovering at his villa at Pesaro, Meroni said Thursday. "He wants only to rest and to have a little peace," she said.
Meroni said the opera star plans to stick to his concert commitments beginning in October.
