"When a genre is not being produced, no one is incented to learn how to
perform it. As Meyerbeer’s operas are produced more, singers will be
encouraged to learn the style."

That's exactly what happened with the Rossini seria (and even buffo : now we get a lot of tenors able to sing "Cessa di piu resistere" when there's was none 40 years before).
