In 1903, Ital­ian tenor En­rico Caruso made his Amer­i­can de­but at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera House in New York, ap­pear­ing in Rigo­letto. Caruso was the artist most re­spon­si­ble for trans­form­ing the phono­graph from a nov­elty into a medium of home en­ter­tain­ment. His record­ings brought him world­wide fame, and he was the first artist to have a mil­lion-sell­ing record, Vesti La Gi­ubba (On With the Mot­ley) from the opera Pagli­acci.
