There’s no clear frontrunner in the search for a new chancellor. When he’s announced, you can only hope he considers the words of [incoming Met G.M.] Peter Gelb: “What I’m trying to do is to honor the aesthetic traditions of the Met while at the same time moving forward. If I were to function purely as a curator, then the Met would not continue to thrive.”
