Union orchestra musicians of New York's Metropolitan Opera perform as they attend a rally with chorus members and others near Lincoln Center in New York City(Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Opera has agreed to extend union contracts for a week to allow for an independent study of its finances, further postponing a threatened lockout at the nation's largest performing arts organization, the Met said on Saturday. Eugene Keilin, a co-founder of KPS Capital Partners, will conduct the analysis, according to the opera and the unions. "We are encouraged with this step forward that we believe will address the issues in contention and will ultimately lead to an agreement that is fair to everyone," said James Odom, president of the American Guild of Musical Artists, in a statement. The opera company had said late Thursday it would extend negotiations with its labor unions for 72 hours.
