Ładysz was laid to rest in the Avenue of Honour at Warsaw’s Powązki military cemetery.

In a letter read out during the funeral, Polish President Andrzej Duda said: "We are bidding farewell to an artist whose achievements have elicited the admiration of music lovers all over the world for decades.”

Ładysz died on July 25, the day after his 98th birthday.

During World War II, Ładysz served as a sergeant in the Polish underground Home Army in his native Vilnius region, now in Lithuania.

From 1944 to 1946, he was imprisoned in a Soviet labour camp in Kaluga, south-west of Moscow.

His spectacular operatic career, which included a joint recording of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor with the legendary soprano Maria Callas, spanned over four decades.
