Mr Cogito Contemplates Peter Gelb's Rumored Plan To Make The MET Opera Jump Head First Into The 21st Century

"Word has it that the Met plans not only to accelerate its commissioning program once Peter Gelb takes over running the company next season, but that it will jump, head first, into the 21st century despite having all but missed three-quarters of the 20th. If that is so, "An American Tragedy" may come to be regarded as the company's final bouquet thrown on the grave of Puccini."
