A regular on Broadway and at the Metropolitan Opera in New York during his heyday, Tozzi died on Monday (30May11).
The cause of death has not been announced.

He is perhaps best known for his starring roles in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro and Mussorgsky's Boris Gudunov.
Tozzi won three Grammy Awards in the 1960s and he was nominated for a Tony for his performance in Frank Loesser's The Most Happy Fella in 1980.
The singer also taught at Juilliard and Indiana University.
