He sang 1,001  performances of 62 roles at the Metropolitan Opera over four decades starting in 1962. While he did take star turns, his many comprimario roles, as opera’s supporting roles are known, increased his performance total to sixth among basses in Met history. He died of natural causes on May 7th Connecticut.
