BOSTON (AP) - James Levine (luh-VYNE’) has returned to the stage as conductor of Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Levine had back surgery in the spring and missed the orchestra’s summer series at Tanglewood.

Welcomed back by a standing ovation Saturday night, he placed his hands over his heart to show his thanks.

Levine led an all-Wagner program of orchestral and vocal excerpts, with help from bass-baritone Bryn Terfel.

This will be Levine’s seventh season as music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. He is also music director of New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
