It wasn't all a choice of the Met--Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, for one, 
rarely (if ever) performed opera outside Europe, and limited most of his 
performances to recitals, cantatas, etc. Other performers had travel and 
family issues--it's easy to forget how difficult travel once was, and 
for many it was simpler just to stay closer to home.

I love Leyla Gencer, by the way. There was a thrill to her performances 
that it's rare to find outside of the truly great.
