A 61 year old Richard Tucker sings Vesti la giubba from act I of Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci. This wound up as Tucker's last ever performance at the Metropolitan opera house as he died about a month later of a heart attack. He sings tremendously here. He had great technique and a voice that was built to last as a result, his voice aged very well.
