Opera star cancels appearances in Madrid’s Teatro Real «kleinezeitung.at


The Spanish opera star Placido Domingo, who has come under pressure due to sexual assault, canceled his five performances in May at the Madrid Teatro Real. This was announced by the traditional opera house on Thursday. With his decision Domingo may have wanted to prevent the Teatro Real from canceling his appearances in the opera “La Traviata”.

The Teatro Real announced that they had “zero tolerance for all kinds of harassment and abuse”. One declares solidarity with the victims. After Domingo’s apology to women accusing him of sexual assault, the Spanish government reacted quickly and canceled two performances by the opera star at the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid on Wednesday.

Domingo was supposed to take part in the opera “Luisa Fernanda” at La Zarzuela on May 14th and 15th and also appear five times in the Teatro Real between May 9th and 23rd. On Tuesday, Domingo apologized to the women who accused him of assault as part of the MeToo movement. Previously, an investigation by the US Association of Music Artists (AGMA) had confirmed the allegations of numerous singers.

The singer did not cancel appearances on May 3 in Ubeda, Spain and in several European cities. The Salzburg Festival recently announced that Plácido Domingo’s engagement in the two concert performances of the Verdi opera “I vespri siciliani” (The Sicilian Vespers) was signed in August 2020. “It was and is the concern of the Festival to treat the singer accused of misconduct fairly, that is, not to prejudge him.” However, the facts have now changed after Domingo admitted that his behavior could have injured the women concerned. “The Salzburg Festival first wants to gather comprehensive information on the progress of the investigations in the US and then announce its decision to the press,” said Salzburg on Wednesday.
