If the Met can do it…

Interesting profile of Peter Gelb, head of the Metropolitan Opera from this Sunday’s New York Times.  My favorite quote: “And then he presided over a dinner for high-rolling Met donors under a tent in Damrosch Park. If he was smarting over the opera’s reception, he didn’t show it. Referring to the Zeffirelli version, he said to the guests, “After 25 years we must move forward by offering new productions that will startle our imaginations and will demonstrate that our art is not locked in the past.””
