A tenor renowned for a voice of beauty and heft that made him a star at the world's top opera houses has died. Marcello Giordani was 56.

Giordani's vocal coach, Bill Schuman, told The Associated Press that he had a heart attack Saturday at his home in Sicily and could not be revived.

In an era when the Three Tenors waned in the 1990s and 2000s, Giordani was sought after in lyric and later spinto roles.

Soprano and frequent singing partner Renée Fleming wrote in a text to the AP that Giordani's death is "a tragic loss" and called him "a remarkably lovely man."
