The Los Angeles Opera has issued a statement saying it will investigate allegations against Placido Domingo contained in an Associated Press story in which numerous women accuse the opera legend of s****l harassment and inappropriate behavior.
Domingo is the general director of the LA Opera and has held top managerial positions at the company since 2000.
Several women in the AP’s story recounted incidents that they said occurred while working with Domingo at the LA company.
In response to the story, the company said in a statement, “LA Opera will engage outside counsel to investigate the concerning allegations about Placido Domingo.”
The statement noted that Domingo has been “a dynamic creative force in the life of LA Opera” for more than three decades, adding, “We believe all employees and artists should be treated respectfully and feel safe and secure within their work environment.”
Domingo has denied the accusations, but noted: “Still, it is painful to hear that I may have upset anyone or made them feel uncomfortable.”
