When several years ago I asked Evelyn Sachs what the most memorable opera 
performance was she ever witnessed she said it was Del Monaco's Met debut as 
Des Grieux.
From around the same time here he is live from Mexico where the audience at 
least didn't consider him the 'boogeyman'.
Verismo singing every tenor today can only dream of. Moreover if you think 
the "boogeyman" is overdoing it try Bergonzi live (opposite Kirsten) not the 
great stylist either but playing to the galleries.
Here's the link. The clip will have to go in a few days
