It's hardly breaking news by now, but Maestro Yannick's got the Met gig. We're fine with that, although we sort of wish he'd spend a little more time making the Philadelphia's summers (and ours) more interesting. Also it will be interesting to see what happens with the Met now officially in the churn of world-wide conductor-dom. UPDATE: Alex Ross has it all in a nutshell.
Thanks to Dr T's headsup, here is the TCE Werther with JDF and JDD from a few weeks back, role debuts for both.
