Conductor Jean-Yves Ossocne, the former director of the Opera in Tours, France, has been charged with moral harassment, La Nouvelle République reports. Three choristers of the opera accuse the conductor of inappropriate comments, made as far back as 2005 and 2006. The procedure lasts for years already, but after a first dismissal, the file was taken over by the court of Tours, where a magistrate decided the indictment. Jean-Yves Ossonce was Music Director of the Opera in Tours from 1999 to 2016.
