Conductor James Levine has returned to New York and is having additional tests on his injured shoulder.

Levine, music director of the Metropolitan Opera and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, was hurt March 1 when he tripped on the stage at Boston’s Symphony Hall during ovations after a performance.

Although he did not break any bones, Levine may have rotator cuff damage. He canceled his next three performances with the BSO and a U.S. tour that began Monday.

BSO spokesman Bernadette Horgan said Thursday that Levine was back in New York, where he lives, and that a diagnosis was not yet available.

Levine’s next scheduled performance is Beethoven’s “Fidelio” on March 20 in New York. Met spokesman Peter Clark said there has been no change to Levine’s schedule.
