Meet Zubin Beckmesser, a Muppet named for former Music Director Zubin Mehta (1978-1991) and Sixtus Beckmesser, a character from Wagner’s “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.” Mehta, not the Muppet, will be returning to the Philharmonic stage January 12-14 to conduct Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony! How many people do you know have a Muppet named after them?
