Julius Rudel, the renowned opera conductor who headed the New York City Opera as both maestro and impresario for 22 years, has died. He was 93.

Lisa Jaehnig told The Associated Press Rudel died Thursday morning of natural causes in his New York City home.

He is survived by three children, seven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

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.

Jaehnig said services would be private, but there "will be a celebration of his life and music later in the year."

The University of Rochester Press published Rudel's memoir, "First and Lasting Impressions: Julius Rudel Looks Back on a Life in Music," last year.
