Breaking: James Levine cancels rest of Met year, Fabio Luisi steps upmain
Levine has not recovered from back surgery this summer, in addition to other complaints.
Luisi, named principal conductor, is covering Siegfried and Don Giovanni.
The Met needs to get its succession strategy in place, fast. Luisi has said he’s not interested in the #1 slot. He’s music director at Zurich Opera, thank you very much.
