The Metropolitan Opera on Saturday said they would open an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) conductor James Levine. The sexual relationship continued in NY where Levine served as the acclaimed music director of the Metropolitan Opera from 1976 through 2016.
New York'sMetropolitan Opera says it will look into allegations that Levine sexually abused a teenager in the mid-1980s.
It's alleged the abuse began whilst Levine, now 74, was Guest Conductor at the Ravina Music Festival, in Chicago - a post he held for more than two decades.
The New YorkPost was the first media outlet to publish a story about these allegations Saturday. He told police that he visited Levine on multiple occasions at a nearby hotel, where Levine asked him to remove his clothes.
The man told police he last spoke with Levine in 2014.
The probe is based on a 2016 IL police report, the Met said.
The younger man was not identified in either report, but The New York Times reported that it had interviewed the alleged victim on condition of anonymity and that he confirmed that he made the accusations in the police report.
The accusations against Levine, among the most prominent classical music conductors in the world, are the latest in a stream of sexual misconduct charges involving high-profile men in entertainment and the media that have rocked the nation since accusations against film mogul Harvey Weinstein were reported in October.
He said he followed Levine's instructions, though he found himself confused by his behavior toward him.
The conductor, known for his wild hair and revered for his musical talent, has won 10 Grammys and been nominated 37 times. He has conducted 85 operas, and led more than 2,500 performances at the Met.
Now, Gelb said, "we need to determine if these charges are true and, if they are, take appropriate action".
"We are deeply disturbed by the news articles that are being published online today about James Levine. Mr. Levine has not conducted the BSO since January 2011 and is not scheduled to conduct the orchestra at any time in the future", the statementposted to Twitter reads.
