NYT the machine is back

One morning in August, Peter Gelb settled into a seat in the nearly empty auditorium of the Metropolitan Opera, where he is general manager, and waited for a run-through of Wagner’s “Die Walküre” to begin.

The storm depicted in the prelude silently took shape onstage, with a huge array of upright planks forming a forest of trees. Video projections buffeted the set with swirling snow. Then the planks shifted, morphing seamlessly to form the inside of a forest dwelling.

The “machine” is back. And, after spending months in the shop, it should be ready to go for another spin this spring, Met officials hope.
