The next scheduled appearance of the Met’s Ring production has been canceled, as irrevocably as these things can ever be.
Finally some video of Stefan Herheim‘s Salome production shows up on YouTube.

La Cieca hears that the Met’s 2013-2014 season announcement will be made at approximately 5:00 PM today on the company’s website.
