James Levine has canceled conducting the Metropolitan Opera's new production of Wagner's "Goetterdaemmerung" and is in danger of missing an entire season at the company for the first time since he made his debut in 1971.
It has been more than a half-century since the Metropolitan Opera debuted a successful staging of Mozart's "Don Giovanni." The wait continues.
Rome's Teatro dell'Opera says Fabio Luisi's last-minute bolting from his engagement to conduct "Elektra" so he could conduct at New York's Metropolitan Opera hurts the world of lyric opera. The Italian capital's opera house says it is considering taking legal action.
Metropolitan Opera music director James Levine has canceled his fall conducting engagements after reinjuring his back, and Italian conductor Fabio Luisi has been named principal conductor.
"I am honored to have been asked to take on these additional responsibilities, but my thoughts are also with Maestro Levine," Luisi said in a statement.
