The Houston Symphony has canceled concert performances of the Beethoven operas Leonore and Fidelio because of lagging ticket sales this season, the symphony reports.

The orchestra also postponed a recording of the composer's Symphony No. 6, "Eroica," and delayed auditions for concertmaster and principal trumpet until next season, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The operas were originally set for March 18-21, 2005, and were part of the orchestra's non-subscription series.

The orchestra canceled the shows in order to reach this season's financial goals, said orchestra president Ed Wolfe.
