Richard Tucker (1914-1975) was born in New York City. As a youth he sang as a member of a synagogue choir, and even made appearances on the radio. He studied voice with Paul Althouse, and gained public recognition after finishing second place in the Metropolitan Opera radio auditions.
 
In 1945 Tucker made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera as Enzo in Amilcare Ponchielli’s La Gioconda. In the following years he became one of the company’s leading tenors. In 1947 he made his European debut at the Verona Arena in the same role, appearing opposite opera legend Maria Callas in the title role.
 
Although Tucker sang in opera and recitals throughout many European cities – London, Milan, Barcelona, Florence, as well as in Latin American and other localities – his career centered in the United States.
Classified as a tenor (the highest adult male voice), Tucker was a popular performer on radio and television, making a number of critically acclaimed recordings. Before his sudden death during a concert tour, he had sung with most of the leading U.S. opera companies and orchestras. He was also highly praised as a cantor, the religious figure who leads the musical part of a Jewish service.
