Talks between New York's Metropolitan Opera and its musicians and other unionized employees will resume this week after the opera company agreed to extend its deadline for a threatened lockout by another week, federal mediators said on Monday. The contract negotiations, the most contentious at the Met since a previous lockout in 1980, had been suspended for a week while an independent analyst studied the Met's finances. Its previous labor contracts expired July 31. The analyst's review is "nearing its completion," the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service said in a statement on Monday, adding that the Met had agreed to extend its deadline to Sunday, Aug. 17.
