The information in question is derived from Birgit Nilsson's Memoires "Mina minnesbilder" (Interpublishing AB, Stockholm, 1977 ISBN 91-0-042069-7) as far as I know only available in Swedish, where Ms Nilsson quotes Sir Rudolph: "As he said to me, he saved the fattest tenor tenor for the last [act] to have something soft to sink down onto during the love death" (p 49, there is even a photo of the three tenors together with Ms Nilsson). Whether this is callous or not is up to how sensitive one is.
