One of his first publicity photographs, taken on a visit to Sicily indepicts him wearing a bedspread draped like a toga since his sole dress shirt was away being laundered.
He did tour Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil in , however, and two years later he performed in Mexico City. In he was paid the then enormous sum of 10, dollars a night to sing in Havana, Cuba, according to biographer Michael Scott in his book The Great Caruso Hamish Hamilton, London, ; page Fourteen years earlier, Caruso and other prominent Met artists had gone to San Francisco to participate in a series of performances at the Tivoli Opera House.
Following his appearance as Don Jose in Carmen, he was awakened at 5: San Francisco had been hit by a major earthquake, which led to a series of fires that destroyed most of the city.
The Met lost all the sets and costumes that it had brought on tour. Clutching an autographed photo of President Theodore Roosevelt as a talisman, Caruso made an effort to flee the city, first by boat and then by train. He vowed never to return to San Francisco; he kept his word. Police accused him of pinching the bottom of a woman. Caruso claimed that a monkey did the bottom-pinching. He was found guilty as charged, however, and fined 10 dollars although suspicions linger that he may have been entrapped by the victim and the arresting officer.
From onwards, Caruso began adding heroic parts such as Samson, John of Leyden and Eleazar to his repertoire, while he planned to tackle Otello the most demanding role written by Verdi for the tenor voice at the Met during That same year, America entered World War One. Caruso did useful charity work during the conflict, raising money for war-related patriotic causes by giving concerts and participating enthusiastically in Liberty Bond drives.
The tenor had proved to be a shrewd businessman since arriving in America. He ploughed a sizeable proportion of his earnings from record royalties and singing fees into a range of remunerative investments. Caruso wed on August 20, Their marriage produced a child, Gloria Caruso born in Dorothy published two books about her husband, whom she called "Rico". One of these books was published in , the other in They included many of his touching letters to her. Prior to his marriage, Caruso had been romantically tied to an Italian soprano, Ada Giachetti, who was a few years older than he.
Though already married, Giachetti bore Caruso four sons during their liaison, which lasted from to Two survived infancy: Ada had left her husband and an existing son to cohabit with the tenor.
A fastidious dresser, Caruso took two baths a day and liked good food and convivial company. He forged a particularly close bond of friendship with the Neapolitan baritone and fellow Met artist Antonio Scotti. Caruso played cards for relaxation and also sketched friends and colleagues. The quality of his numerous surviving caricatures suggest that he could have made an alternative living as a professional cartoonist.
He also amassed a valuable collection of rare postage stamps, coins, antiques and small art objects. Caruso was a heavy smoker of strong Egyptian cigarettes, too. This deleterious habit, combined with a lack of healthy exercise and the punishing schedule of performances that Caruso willingly undertook season after season at the Met, may have contributed to the bad health which afflicted the last 12 months of his life. He recorded several discs that day, including two items of religious music by Rossini.
These discs were to be his last. He displayed the symptoms of what appeared to be a heavy dose of bronchitis but his condition worsened just before Christmas, and he began experiencing persistent pain in his left side. Appearing in the cast that night was the Australian coloratura, Evelyn Scotney, who had sung with Caruso a number of times. He experienced episodes of intense pain because of the infection and he underwent seven surgical procedures to drain fluid from his chest and lungs.
He returned to Naples to recuperate from the most serious of his operations, during which part of a rib had been removed. According to Dorothy Caruso, he seemed to be recovering, but allowed himself to be examined by an unhygienic local doctor and his condition worsened dramatically after that. The Bastianelli brothers, eminent doctors with a clinic in Rome, recommended that his left kidney be removed.
He was on his way to Rome to see them but, while staying overnight in the Vesuvio Hotel in Naples, his precarious condition took an alarming turn for the worse and he was given morphine to help him sleep.
Caruso died at the hotel a few minutes after 9: He was aged The Bastianellis attributed the likely cause of death to peritonitis arising from a burst subrenal abscess.
His embalmed body was preserved in a glass sarcophagus at Del Pianto Cemetery in Naples for mourners to view. In , Dorothy Caruso had his remains sealed permanently in an ornate stone tomb. Honours During his lifetime, Caruso received many orders, decorations, testimonials and other kinds of honors from the monarchs, governments and certain cultural bodies of the various nations in which he sang.
On February 27 of that same year, the United States Postal Service issued a cent postage stamp in his honor. He performed only one opera by Richard Wagner, namely Lohengrin, and that was early in his career.
