James Levine

The Metropolitan Opera in New York announced that James Levine has cancelled the new production of Alban Berg’s Lulu, opening on November 5. The announcement said Levine will concentrate his energies on Wagner’s Tannhäuser, which opens on October 8. Why this overlapping was planned after all, is one of the mysteries of the music business. Lothar Koenigs will take over the first five performances of Lulu. The Met said that the conductor of the final three performances would be announced later.
