The tenor Placido Domingo has been accused of sexual harassment by some women in the world of opera. The women told the American news agency AP that the singer would have promised them engagements in theaters if they had given in to his proposals.
Many of them were young, and early in their careers: they accepted for fear of repercussions in their working careers if they refused. Many people in the field of opera have confirmed that the tenor would have maintained incorrect attitudes towards young singers, dancers and theater staff.
Many women were advised never to remain alone with Placido Domingo and never to accept dinner invitations from the singer.
For his part, the tenor declared that the accusations are absurd, because all his relations seemed to him well accepted and consensual.
