Has there been any discussion about this?

The Metropolitan Opera Guild is seeking permission in court to sell off a
memorabilia collection  with an estimated value of more than $1 million 
that includes a gold cigarette holder that belonged to the bass Ezio Pinza;
a jeweled baton owned by the composer Richard Wagner; and a silver, ivory
and diamond pen that was used by the composer Giacomo Meyerbeer.

The guild was founded to support the Metropolitan Opera, which has been
under serious financial pressure in recent years, leading the company to cut
costs and redouble its efforts to raise money. The guild, a separate entity,
wants to sell the memorabilia collection, which is now kept in storage and
rarely seen, and to divide the proceeds with the Met.
