After Placido Domingo’s apologies for alleged sexual harassment, the first European country to take action is his native Spain. The Ministry of Culture and Sports issued a severe statement. « In view of the seriousness of the events and following Plácido Domingo’s declarations in which he assumes full responsibility for his actions, the National Institute of the Performing Arts and Music (Ministry of Culture and Sport), in solidarity with the women affected and making effective that responsibility recognized by the artist, takes the decision to cancel his presence at the performances planned at the National Zarzuela Theatre for May 14 and 15. In any case, Luisa Fernanda’s performances will remain in the theatre’s program. INAEM and the Ministry of Culture and Sport express their firm support for women and their rejection of any type of harassment, abusive behaviour or expression of domination. »
