After James Levine’s health problems and Peter Gelb’s upcoming tragic accident in an abandoned pool, a power vacuum has been left at the Metropolitan Opera. Rick Santorum has stepped in to fill the vacuum as new General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera.
“We’re shocked to get him. That he was available and even interested,” said the Met’s VP of Doing a Special Dance, Jeffrey Forknocker. ”But we’re pleased and perplexed to have him.”
Santorum was devastated to learn his first choice for Assistant Artistic Director; Jim J Bullock had in fact passed away.
