    Great Performances [#3813B] Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the greatest male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.
    Even today, it is his powerful sound with its natural grace and brilliant color which still leads many to consider him the world's greatest voice. It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5324H] * Late Thursday the House passed a bipartisan budget proposal that will fund the government through 2015 and avert a potential government shutdown in January.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#108H] Water Wars, Archbishop Cordileone and Hacking for Social Change
    Water Tunnel Wars
    This week, state officials unveiled the latest version of an ambitious plan to address California's decades-old water crisis. A whopping 34,000 pages detail the environmental impact of a $25 billion project to divert water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and pipe it to Southern California. Proponents say the project will help move water from the state's north to the south while saving the Delta's endangered species. Critics call the plan a costly water grab and have vowed to block it in court or at the ballot box.

    Guests:
    Paul Rogers, KQED and San Jose Mercury News
    Lauren Sommer, KQED

    KQED Science: California's Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

    Archbishop Cordileone
    Catholics around the world cheered this week's selection of Pope Francis as Time magazine's Person of the Year. In words and deeds, the new pope has provided a distinct change in tone for the church, stressing modesty and concern for the poor, while rejecting an emphasis on social issues like abortion and gay rights. Scott Shafer sits down with San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone for a look into how the local church hierarchy is reacting. Cordileone, a San Diego native, was named archbishop by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. He is a conservative figure in one of the state's liberal bastions, leading a flock that stretches from Marin to San Mateo.

    Hacking for Social Change
    Computer code and apps could be the next tools used in the fight to curb gun violence. One year after the Newtown massacre, the Bay Area hosts a conference exploring how technology can prevent future tragedies. Thuy Vu talks with James Colgan of Highground Hackers, the group behind this weekend's "Symposium for Sandy Hook."
