The Met Adds Seven New Productions

In a smart creative move, the Met is moving away from emphasizing world premieres. They'll let shows debut elsewhere -- like the revival of Philip Glass's Satyagraha in London -- and then bring it to NYC after it's been road-tested, just like they do with a Broadway show. This will give the creative talents involved a chance to tweak their shows, especially important for new works. I'm especially looking forward to John Doyle tackling "Peter Grimes" and Audra McDonald (hopefully) starring in John Adams' "Doctor Atomic."
