    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 [#5328H] The headlines for the first full week of 2014 are filled with new controversies surrounding the Obama administration, a simmering scandal involving a GOP presidential hopeful, and renewed partisan battles over unemployment benefits.
    * In his soon-to-be-released memoir, former defense secretary Robert Gates offers scathing criticism of the Obama administration, Congress and some of his former colleagues in Washington. Gates, a holdover from George W. Bush's administration, served 4 presidents of both political parties and held bipartisan esteem and respect as a consummate team player. But his new book paints a picture of a man burdened by his disappointment with dysfunctional Washington and his strong sense of duty to the men and women of the armed services. Peter Baker of The New York Times will take a closer look at Gates' assessment of the current administration and his tenure as a war secretary.
    * New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held a nearly 2-hour news conference on Thursday to apologize to the people of his state and answer questions about a traffic scandal involving some of his top staff members.

John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News will examine how the New Jersey governor is trying to distance himself from the erupting political fallout that could threaten his 2016 presidential ambitions.
    * Meanwhile President Obama and Congress returned from their holiday recess focused on dealing with the expiration of unemployment benefits for 1.3 million Americans. Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post will explain the politics at play behind extending emergency benefits to the long-term unemployed and how it might be the catalyst for Democrats to continue their push for raising the federal minimum wage.
    * Beth Reinhard of National Journal will examine how Republican party leaders are focusing their attention on poverty in America as a counterpoint to efforts by Democrats to bring attention to income inequality 50 years after Lyndon Johnson's landmark legislative "War on Poverty" efforts.
