If one is an anomaly, two is a coincidence, and three is a trend, then Ron Howard might strictly become a music documentarian after “Pavarotti” hits theaters.

The documentary about the legendary Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti comes on the heels of Howard’s “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week” and “Made in America,” a look at Jay-Z’s music festival of the same name.

“Look at the way music has become so important in the medium in general, whether it’s scripted or documentary.  I think it’s something to rally an audience around.  Technology is such that we can offer a kind of concert experience,” Howard told Variety at a screening of the film on Wednesday at CAA in Los Angeles.  “Our intention was to make this as much of an opera as it a human-interest story about Pavarotti.”

“Pavarotti” arrives in theaters on June 7.
