Placido Domingo, considered a living God in the Opera world, faces dozens of accusations of sexual harassment
Issued on: Modified:
Opera great Placido Domingo defended himself against multiple accusations of sexual harassment Tuesday as the Los Angeles Opera opened a probe into the "concerning allegations" and another group canceled one of his performances. In a report by the Associated Press, several women, one of whom was identified, accused Domingo of using his position as one of opera's most celebrated singers to pressure them into sexual relationships. Eight singers and a dancer told the agency they were sexually harassed in incidents going back to the 1980s. One said Domingo had put his hand down her skirt while three said he had forcibly kissed them.
