NEW YORK (AP) — The Metropolitan Opera is cutting ticket prices by an average of about 10 percent next season, when music director James Levine returns from a spine injury that led to a two-year absence.
In the company's first season without Richard Wagner operas since anti-German sentiment in 1918-19 caused by World War I, the Met will present six new-to-New York productions, the fewest since Peter Gelb's first season as general manager in 2006-07.
Levine, who turns 70 on June 23, has been the company's leading force for four decades in various roles. He has had three spinal operations since his last performance on May 14, 2011.
