British opera star Margaret Price, considered one of the world's leading sopranos, has died at the age of 69 from heart failure, the BBC reported Saturday.

Price died on Friday at her home near Cardigan, southwest Wales.

Known for her ability in interpreting Mozart's works, she performed in many of the world's most famous opera houses.

She was knighted for her services to music in 1993, giving her the title Dame Margaret.

She made Munich her home but returned to Wales on her retirement in 1999.
