Years after the Pavarotti and Dion sang the duet “I Hate You Then I Love You” fans of the Italian tenor and Canadian singer still get goosebumps listening to their beautiful voices.


Luciano Pavarotti had a long multi-awarded career as an operatic tenor and was considered the greatest tenor of his time. He said,

“I dreamed to become a singer when I was four, and I hear my father singing in church with a beautiful tenor voice. And I say to myself, well let’s try to do something.”


His voice was known to keep its “purity of tone” even at the “highest register” which earned him the nickname, “The King of High C’s.”

Known for his many operatic roles including the ones in Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto”, Gaetano Donizetti’s “La Fille du régiment”, and his signature “Nessun Dorma” aria by Puccini, it was his also flexibility and openness to transitioning to pop music that gave him an even broader audience and fan base.


In 1997, Celine Dion released her album, “Let’s Talk About Love” where she sang the duet “I Hate You Then I Love You” with Pavarotti. The pair sang it live in 1998 at the Pavarotti & Friends for the Children of Liberia concert.

Today, the duet still stirs up powerful emotions among its viewers. The power and passion in the voices of Dion and Pavarotti were perfect for the intensity of the song’s words.

“Impossible to live with you,

But I could never live without you,

For whatever you do,

I never, never, never,

Want to be in love with anyone but you.”


Dion who lost her husband and love of her life in 2016, after 22 years of marriage. Friends and family have tried to convince her to see new people and possibly date again, but a source says,

“Her husband was the love of her life and living without him is still incredibly painful for her. She is very conservative and isn’t ready to date, and she might never be.”
