Julius Rudel | Opera conductor, 93
Mr. Rudel was born in Austria, but moved to America as a teenager. He led more than 150 operas in the world's major opera houses, including the Vienna Staatsoper, Paris Opera, Metropolitan Opera, and Los Angeles Opera. He joined the New York City Opera in 1944. The City Opera filed for bankruptcy and shut down late last year.
Jaehling said services would be private, but there "will be a celebration of his life and music later in the year." - AP
