His beautifully textured, dark-hued voice encompassed a wide vocal range, from the depths of Boris Godunov to the baritone role of Amonasro in Verdi's "Aida" (the role of his 1951 Metropolitan Opera debut).
He was equally renowned in Wagner as well as Mozart, and his keen dramatic sense and strikingly handsome appearance made him an ideal Don Giovanni.
