Reaction to the sexual harassment allegations against Opera Superstar Placido Domingo is coming fast and furious.
Since the allegations came to light yesterday, two companies have cancelled appearances by the 78-year old legend and the LA Opera, where Domingo has been general director since 2003, is launching an investigation.
The Philadelphia Orchestra and San Francisco Opera have cancelled upcoming performances.
The Metropolitan Opera is awaiting the results of the LA Opera’s investigation before making a final decision on Domingo’s performances in New York next month.
For his part, Domingo called the allegations deeply troubling and “as presented, inaccurate.”
