Canadian Opera Co. music director Johannes Debus to replace James Levine at Tanglewood festival
Word is out that Canadian Opera Company music director Johannes Debus is taking over conducting duties at the Tanglewood Festival concert presentation of Mozart's Abduction From the Seraglio next month, replacing James Levine, who will not be doing anything at his orchestra's annual summer music bash, due to continued health problems.
The prestigious festival puts Debus in some fine company. The other fill-in conductors include Michael Tilson Thomas, Hans Graf and Christoph von Dohnányi.
