Austrian singer Ludwig poses during a photocall in Cannes, southern France
Christa Ludwig has died at age 93, Austrian media reported on Sunday.
The mezzo-soprano who was born in Berlin but lived just outside Vienna died on Saturday, Austrian news agency APA said.
Ludwig, who retired in 1994, was awarded France's Legion of Honour in 2010 for her career that spanned almost half a decade.
The singer entered Vienna's State Opera at 1955 and performed at the esteemed Salzburg Festival under Austrian orchestra conductor Karl Boehm.
Ludwig also toured internationally, taking the stage at Milan's Scala, London's Royal Opera House and New York's Metropolitan Opera, among others.
After a first marriage to Austrian bass-baritone Walter Berry, in 1972 she married French comedian and director Paul-Emile Deiber, who died in 2011.
Fatima Said made her singing debut at 14 at the Cairo Opera House and had progressed to become the first Egyptian soprano to win a scholarship to study at the prestigious academy of the world famous La Scala opera in Milan.
The singer, who has been making tweaks to an album that has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, appeared engrossed in the tunes during a daily walk.
Singer was recently forced to delay album's release due to coronavirus pandemic.
Hereafter, the film will compete in the Oscars if it is selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the final nomination list.
The Museum said last month it had sacked a staff member over stolen, missing or damaged items in a crisis that highlighted internal failings and led to its director quitting days later.
The concert film will open in most countries on 13 October, with 13 other countries following on 3 November. The US cinema chain AMC said that Swift’s film will play at every one of its locations in the country at least four times a day on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday upon opening.
