Boston Symphony Orchestra conductor returns
BOSTON — James Levine (luh-VYNE’) has returned to the stage as conductor of Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Levine had back surgery in the spring and missed the orchestra’s summer series at Tanglewood.
Welcomed back by a standing ovation Saturday night, he placed his hands over his heart to show his thanks.
Levine led an all-Wagner program of orchestral and vocal excerpts, with help from bass-baritone Bryn Terfel.
This will be Levine’s seventh season as music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. He is also music director of New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
