BOSTON (AP) - Six months after back surgery, conductor James Levine has played a rare doubleheader.

He led a performance at New York’s Metropolitan Opera of Wagner’s “Das Rheingold” beginning at 1:15 p.m. Saturday. Levine then traveled to Boston for an 8 p.m. Boston Symphony Orchestra performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” on Saturday night.

The 67-year-old is music director for both the Met and the BSO. He had returned to the podium on Sept. 27 following his recovery.

Saturday’s doubleheader that started in New York came after two days of performances in Boston.
