Leonard Slatkin Canned From Met Gig?

Yow! Leonard Slatkin, of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, has been, opera gossips hear, straight up fired from conducting “La Traviata” at the Met. But how were his reviews? “Several times I noted looks of fear in the vocalists’ faces as they glanced over at Slatkin wailing away at a pace faster than necessary in several key moments.” YIKES.
