Dutch opera star Cristina Deutekom has died, aged 82.
The singer passed away on 7 August (14) from injuries sustained in a fall at her home.
Deutekom made her breakthrough in the 1960s with Amsterdam's Dutch National Orchestra, and went on to perform all over the world with leading men including Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras.
She retired from the stage in the mid-1980s after suffering heart problems during a performance in Spain and turned to teaching, but made a brief return in a Dutch production in 1996.
Deutekom stepped away from public life for good after suffering a stroke in 2004.
