James Levine

New York’s Metropolitan Opera suspended music director emeritus James Levine on Sunday pending an internal investigation into multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

The New York Times reported that meanwhile three men had come forward to accuse Levine, 74, of sexually abusing them decades ago, including during the early period of his conducting career at the Met.

The Met has canceled Levine’s scheduled performances, including the new production of Puccini’s Tosca starting New Year’s Eve.
