Spanish soprano legend Montserrat Caballe died aged 85 at St Pau hospital in Barcelona on Saturday, after reportedly being admitted there last month following repeated health problems. The prominent opera singer gained a tremendous success in 1965, when her performance in Lucrezia Borgia at Carnegie Hall in New York paved the way for her half a century career as an international opera legend... Еще. Caballe performed at the best opera venues in the world, with equally bright stars such as Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo. In 1987 her duet performing the single «Barcelona» with rock band Queen's lead vocalist Freddie Mercury made the song one of the band's greatest hits, and the song gained an ever greater success when it was featured five years later at 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. The funeral of the singer is being held in Barcelona on Monday.
