LA Opera Not Releasing Details On Placido Domingo Investigation

By Francisco Salazar

The LA Opera is not disclosing any basic information on the investigation it will be conducting about Placido Domingo’s sexual harassment claims at the moment.

The company said that it would not say “who would be conducting the investigation, how it would be carried out, when it would start or its expected duration.”

However, a spokeswoman said Friday that “LA Opera will share details when they have information and that there was currently nothing to add beyond the statement released Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the American Guild of Musical Artists issued a statement calling for wider investigations stating, “AGMA became aware of serious allegations of sexual harassment made by multiple women against Placido Domingo. We have contacted our employers to demand investigations into these allegations.”

The organization also stated that it will be “closely monitoring the internal LA Opera investigation” and has scheduled a membership meeting in Los Angeles early next week, prior to the start of rehearsals, to address any member concerns on questions. The LA Opera 2019-2020 season starts Sept. 14 with “La Bohème.”
