A Minute With: Met Opera chief Peter Gelb on live opera broadcasts

Gelb, new general manager of Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera, poses in lobby of opera house in New YorkWhen the Metropolitan Opera began its live-to-cinema opera transmissions on December 30, 2006, its then-new general manager Peter Gelb says many people predicted the expensive experiment would fail.
