Barenboim to stay 10 more years at Berlin opera

By The Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) ' The city of Berlin says renowned conductor Daniel Barenboim has signed a new contract to remain musical director of its Staatsoper opera house for another decade.

The Israeli-Argentinean conductor has been in the role since 1992.

Mayor Klaus Wowereit said Wednesday the new contract for the 68-year-old would take effect when his current one expires at the end of the month.

The famous opera's 19th-century home on Unter den Linden boulevard in what used to be East Berlin is currently under construction and will reopen at the beginning of the 2014-2015 season.

The Staatsoper has moved across town to the Schiller Theater during the restoration work.

It's one of three major opera houses in the German capital.
