Metropolitan Opera fires James Levine after sex abuse claims
    2018-03-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

纽约大都会歌剧院在获得詹姆斯·莱文性虐待新证据后将其解雇

New York’s Metropolitan Opera has fired eminent conductor James Levine, after an internal inquiry found “credible evidence” to support claims he sexually abused young male musicians.

Levine, who denies the allegations, was suspended in December when they were made public.

The conductor, now 74, was music director at the Met for 40 years.

He retired for health reasons in 2016, but had continued to work with the opera as music director emeritus*.

“The investigation uncovered credible evidence that Levine had engaged in sexually abusive and harassing* conduct both before and during the period when he worked at the Met,” the opera house said in a statement.

It said there was also evidence that the conductor abused and harassed “vulnerable* artists in the early stages of their careers.”

The Met said more than 70 people were interviewed during its investigation.

Four men have accused Levine of sexually abusing them decades ago. Some say they were teenagers at the time.

An Illinois police report, seen by the New York Times, said one of the alleged victims claimed that the abuse began in 1985 when he was 15 and Levine was 41, and continued until 1993.

The conductor has previously called the accusations “unfounded.”
