Adriaan van Limpt

Adriaan van Limpt, once ranked by Daily Variety as the world’s fourth-best tenor, has died. He was 61.

Van Limpt, a former cafe owner who was 35 when he finished his classical voice training in Maastricht, died May 15 in Son en Breugel, Netherlands, after a long battle with stomach cancer.

Van Limpt had recently given up opera in favor of musicals, singing in a longrunning Dutch production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” and acting as a voice coach for a production of “Miss Saigon.”
