James Levine is out ... again

The Boston Globe is reporting that Maestro James Levine, whose time as music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra has been scarred by injuries, will miss the remainder of the BSO's season due to his chronic back issues.
The BSO announced today that Levine, 66, will be replaced in a series of concerts over the next three weeks that were to have been his final performances of the 2009-2010. Levine underwent surgery for a herniated disc last fall, forcing him to miss months at the BSO and the Metropolitan Opera, where he also serves as music director.

Levine was not available for comment, according to the BSO. Ronald A. Wilford, Levine's manager, said it was too early to know what course of treatment Levine would be taking. "He’s in excruciating pain so they’ve got to figure out what to do about it," he said.
We wish Maestro Levine well and hope that his doctors are able to treat this issue swiftly.

I wonder what this will mean for the MET?
