Subject: applause habits (Was: Booing at the Met)

I've often wondered if audiences have always burst loudly into ecstatic
applause at that invariable, inevitable moment during the reprise of the
melody at the end of "Nessun dorma," or if audiences were conditioned to do
so during the era when Pavarotti's televised stadium performances of the
aria were seemingly ubiquitous.  How far back does this audience timing go
in live performances?
