The young David Tucker was in awe of his famous father and wanted with all his heart to follow in
his footsteps as another Tucker opera star. His father, however, had other plans for him. You’ll want

career which he began as a cantor in New York City’s largest synagogue to his starring roles in
operas produced at The Met and around the world.
