NEW YORK (AP) - Andrea Bocelli will receive a graduate degree in Italy next week.

The 55-year-old tenor says he'll receive a master's degree in vocal performance from The Conservatory of Music, Giacomo Puccini in La Spezia, Italy, on Tuesday.

Bocelli will present his thesis, titled "The Value and Meaning of Opera Singing at the Beginning of the Third Millennium," later this month. The 70-page dissertation includes contributions from Placido Domingo.

He'll also release a CD/DVD, "Love in Portofino," on Tuesday. The renowned performer has sold 80 million albums internationally.

Bocelli has a law degree from the University of Pisa.
