    More information in this New York Times article, providing significant background information. Most unsavoury, if true. Those of a more fragile/sensitive disposition may prefer not to read it.

    I remember reading that there were rumors that Levine may have been a pedophile twenty years ago. I can not remember where. I do remember discussing this with my opera friends at work.
    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. And I am a very ingenious fellow

    It's been discussed on this site several times, people then said: " they where just rumours".

    Default Levine facing sexual misconduct investigation.......

    James Levine of the Metropolitan Opera being
    investigated for sexual misconduct.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    Some of the links have certainly opened my eyes. My chosen profession entails my working with individuals, who have committed the most heinous crimes but despite this, some of the events described here affect me deeply, probably because classical music has often provided me with welcome relief from such darkness. Whilst I would normally click on the 'Like this post' for all of the responses provided, somehow it does not seem appropriate on this occasion. Nevertheless, I do appreciate the comments that others have provided.

    I've edited the title because people keep coming across the story and don't see a thread on it so start another one.

    Hardly that! The rats have been around in the shadows forever, we have just chosen to ignore them, often because they were figures of power who could make or break careers, but now they are coming into the light. Whether Levine, or anyone else, is guilty is yet to be determined but the fact that the rumours have been around for decades and that a police report was filed over a year ago, before we started seeing daily accusations about famous people, implies that there *could* be something to this particular case.
