Conductors tend to enjoy slow tempos generally, stretching out the music to make it seem more lyrical and meaningful.  

In reality, from the audience point of view, almost without exception, operas come across better with faster tempos.

Levine sometimes went overboard with the tempo speed, but he generally got it right.  This is a major reason as to why audiences admired his conducting.
