About Kaufmann's cancellation, it is difficult to say in precise terms, but (1) the 
world's art community is obviously aware of the "new America" and expressions of 
opposition are beginning to be heard. Jordi Savall is creating a new orchestra made 
up entirely of immigrants, for example. It will only get worse. (2) The dates he 
abandoned are in the holiday season, if I remember correctly, and, if family is 
important, this could be a factor and (3) is there still a cap on fees at the Met? A 
cap on fees at the Met makes it harder to compete with cities like Berlin, Milan and 
Paris without one and all wanting the same guy and (4) the Met these days, with 
rows of empty seats and middling management, has not the same cache it once 
had. After his Paris Lohengrin, he will be do a concert version of the Munich 
Chenier on the 25th with Harteros at the Theatre des Champs Elysees.
