MUSIC NEWS

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Opera said it will lock out its musicians and other unionized employees next week if a new contract agreement is not reached, in an escalation of a labor dispute that threatens to derail an entire opera season. Peter Gelb, the Met's general manager, wrote a letter to chorus members, orchestra players, stagehands and other employees on Wednesday saying they should prepare for a work stoppage if a new agreement is not reached when current contracts expire on July 31. The Met, which says it has an annual operating budget of over $300 million, has blamed a drop in its revenues since 2011 on dwindling audiences for opera worldwide.

Canadian singer Justin BieberJustin Bieber enticed fans on Wednesday by sharing several short clips from his recent time in the studio. The Canadian pop star posted a total of 11 clips, seemingly from as many new songs, and captioned the first "Cold waters," presumably a track name. In each of the seconds-long videos, Bieber simply focuses the camera on a studio soundboard and moves it to the beat of the music. The only other clue is a tweet from Bieber on the same day that read, "Great night in the studio."
