Exclusive: James Levine returns to conductingmain
Zubin Mehta and Alexander Pereira have booked him to conduct Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust in January 2021 at the Maggio Musicale in Florence.
Levine, 77, has not raised a baton since he was fired by the Met in March 2018 for alleged sexual abuse.
Pereira is claiming his return as a great coup.
Levine will also conduct Brahms’ German Requiem with Thomas Hampson and Hanna-Elisabeth Müller.
