    The NY Post never should have published it. Lots of fake news out there. Everyone is looking for a juicy story.

    Or a smokescreen. Notice the woman who accused Colaneri remains anonymous. No one can even face their accuser anymore. How can someone defend himself against anonymous accusations?

    The Met’s former music director was paid $3.5 million to drop his unfair dismissal lawsuit and walk away quietly, according to leaks to a pair of NY Times reporters.

    Levine was fired in March 2018 for a history of alleged sexual misconduct.

    Nobody comes out of this well. The money he was paid came from well-intentioned donors who expected it would go towards producing opera.

    Zubin Metha : James Levine was ruined by the U.S.A media

    The veteran conductor, 84, opening tonight at La Scala, has been sharing some retro views with Corriere della Serra.

    Among other things:

    ‘Leave the blacklists to American puritanism. Levine has been ruined by US media. Domingo had to leave Los Angeles Opera, which was nothing before he came. And all because of complaints from failed artists after 30 years . That sounds like revenge.’

    It sounds like a conductor who isn't very enlightened about sexual harassment.
