In fairness, if there was a "Met-centric" implication at all, then it would
have been appropriate here because it was Tucker's lifelong dream to sing
Eleazar on the Met stage. I read that the news of approval finally reached
him but alas only a few days before his death.

That said, I think that his New Orleans Eleazar must have been staged
because it was an interesting curiosity I once read that the Met loaned him
Caruso's costume for that occasion.

I heard his Eleazar in the London live recording and the ovations were
well-deserved, indeed.
