James Levine Cancels Another Performance
(artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com)

Mr. Levine has cancelled more and more frequently over a period of ten years.  With that in mind, I find his recent decision to be a positive for all concerned. Both the Met and the BSO recently made plans for conductors to be available in case of cancellation.

What do you think?  Has this gone on too long?  Or should major institutions be expected to continue to be accommodating at all cost?
