Principal conductors::
In the Met's inaugural season of 1883–1884, Auguste Vianesi, who conducted most of the performances that season including opening night, was listed in the playbills as "Musical Director and Conductor." The Met did not have another officially designated "music director" until Rafael Kubelik in 1973. However, a number of the Met's conductors have assumed a strong leadership role at different times in the company's history. They set artistic standards and influenced the quality and performance style of the orchestra, but without any official title. The Met has also had many famed guest conductors who are not listed here.
