Peter Gelb, General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera, is “the man behind the curtain” who makes all this magic happen at Lincoln Center. Here he speaks about his 6th season at the helm of Met Opera.

    Interesting that Gelb calls Netrebko the most famous soprano of our times…. wonder what Angela Gheorghiu would have to say about that? Hype or not?

    looks like another fantastic season. wish it were more affordable.

    Peter Gelb is a terrible bore who spouts cliches. He also takes credit for what are not his ideas or work. He does not offer a single innovative or theorized concept. He is nothing but a banal impresario. For example, neither Gelb nor Kentridge knew of the Shostakovich opera, The Nose–neither originated this hit. The proposal came from elsewhere: the research and aetiology and performance ideas were appropriated without credit. See THE APP on javari http://javari.com/Kentridge.pdf for details. New York NY
