BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — The Bucharest Opera says celebrated Romanian baritone Dan Iordachescu, who sang at Milan's La Scala and the Vienna State Opera during a half-century career, has died. He was 85.

His family said he died Sunday after a long illness.

Iordachescu sang in 61 countries, with artists such as Placido Domingo, Monserrat Caballe and Luciano Pavarotti. He performed in more than 1,000 operas, including at the Opera de Paris and in Munich, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Los Angeles and New York.

Iordachescu made his debut in Bucharest in 1949 and his last performance was in 2005. The Los Angeles Times wrote in 1974 that "Iordachescu is a phenomenon. His voice is immense, dark in color, resonant ... indefatigable."

He is survived by his wife and two opera-singer daughters, Irina and Cristina.
