Some in the orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera have been increasingly vocal in their compaints that they haven’t heard from their music director since the outbreak of Covid.
It’s not altogether surprising since he’s also chief in Philadelphia and Montreal, but still.
Last night, he flashed up a video on Youtube.
Some of the musicians, meanwhile, have taken to the streets.
They have also been giving virtual masterclasses with Scarsdale High School, Renaissance School of the Arts in East Harlem, and the Napa Valley Festival.
