Dear Kiwi,

Thanks for your insights, However, I wonder if this statement is really 
"Then there is Gelb himself, whom is not loved by all the singers (a minor
point but still one to consider) and the fact he doesn't necessary off
contracts to all that many Europeans:  he is after only the biggest names
and the prettiest people. There are a a host of big named European singers
who simply don't fit his preferred 'star' requirements and are never asked
to come. While he has an open door policy for a handful of named singers, 
it is largely a closed door for others."

There are, to my knowledge, quite a few European singers beyond "a 
handful" - and many of them very accomplished singers but not necessarily 
major stars - that has graced the stage of the Met during the Bing era. A 
very few examples (by memory): Susanne Resmark and Diane Montague 
as Gertrud in Romeo and Juliet, Laurent Naouri as Capulet, Johan Reuter as 
Barak and Dr. Schön, Alan Opie in Rusalka, Idomeneo and Merry Widow, 
Marianna Pizzolato in Italiana, etc etc.

Kind regards
