This old lady is so ridiculous, she admits he never touched her and on her LinkedIn she brags about singing with Mister Plácido. Hey Patricia, next time you are going to falsely accuse someone, search for your social networks LOL

All of these Uncorroborated Accusations that are jumping out of the woodwork all these years later are having a real-world damaging affect to women in the workplace. As a women who works in HR, I can tell you that these Unverifiable Accusations that are being thrown around is starting to have actual Real-World affect, women are slowly but surely being Ostracized from the Workplace and in Corporate America in general because of the Possibility that women may use Sexual Harassment Accusations as a tool to further their Careers or as a tool to Destroy a Male Co-Workers careers.


Things are going to get very messy before they end up any better it seems...

Yes, the problem here is misplaced ambition and idolatry. Nobody should ever believe anyone is "god" and then bow to their will regardless of how much you can gain from cooperating with disgusting intentions. Period. No person is god, no matter how high up the achievement ladder they climb.

Well?!? .....We're all waiting with 'bated breath!
DID he ruin your career? .....You rejected his advances several times; and THEN what? What happened to your career? Did people start turning you down for performances due to his influence or something? ....Other than finding out that he was a hetero-sexual man with a classless, crude way of expressing his interest in women, what did he DO that harmed your career?

Taras Demchyshyn Conductor & Clarinetist:
it is very unfortunate to observe how the modern world is bullied by such high levels of singers it is possible to tell the treasures of the present with some dirty gossip on the Internet.
everyone wants only money and money! Make such scandals a sensation for the sake of money and the humiliation of such a famous, best singer, maestro in the world.He is 78 years old! What scandals can be discussed!we should be grateful that at this age he continues to delight people with his wonderful singing and music. if an old grandmother lies about a story of 30 years ago why should I believe her? Who is she anyway?and why are well-known music orchestras and online publications going for it? I know about Placido as a great man with a big heart from his divine voice and music and not from the internet or any scandals as is now fashionable in the world. The world has changed a lot and people are greedy and angry Unfortunately, they began to think only for the money.

I'm deeply disturbed, disgusted as well as shocked to see how easy it has become for us women to destroy within seconds not only the life of an individual but of entire families! What on earth is going on? These are all allegations - where is the solid evidence? The findings of an investigation committee? What ever happened to the good old "innocent until proven guilty"?

Apart from all this: if women value their possible career higher than their dignity and pride ... then they're simply prostitutes trading sex for a role and career. If I were the judge I'd simply throw out and dismiss cases where we women "remember" only after decades that we got back then sexually harassed or raped ... by a today rich and famous man. Interestingly enough I've never heard of a ... taxi driver or a truck driver being accused!

All these stories are ridiculous to say the least; all these wanna be "celebrities" want is their 5 minutes of fame after all. Add to this that those Opera Houses where (in this cases) Placido Domingo was in charge weren't and aren't the only Opera Houses in the world. All they needed to do back then (if he truly harassed them) is to blow the whistle on him and move on to another Opera House. Where's the problem really?!?!

Great now the other women in her profession, who were strong independent and empowered enough to sleep their way to the top, to make their dreams come true by any means necessary...will have to climb on the MeToo band wagon, and denounce Placido, if they don’t want to be shamed as a whore?

Geez, this comment section is so toxic. I respect her for being brave enough to come forward and be honest despite the MANY folks who are going to attack her for this just like the people in this comment section are. I can onky imagine the death threats she's probly already recieved. I hope this inspires any other women harassed by this man to come forward as well and shine a light on this problem.

If we accused every man of sexual harassment who made a flirtatious suggestion towards us when we were young, we'd all be millionaires by now. And so would the lawyers. Leave the bloke alone for God's sake. He was just a young man keen to hook up with a pretty girl. It's been that way forever and will always be.

Coming to think of it: I believe we normal women should start a movement like e.g. "Not Without Evidence". These career and publicity hungry females are destroying our reputation. I would not be surprised if in the future men only talk to us through or with their lawyers present. How far can this nonsense be taken?!

Just by looking at her eyes you can tell that she's lying as usual for a LYING BITCH.
She probably tried to seduce him and he rejected her. This type of behavior is very typical of women.

Mr. Tactical:
Her face screams CASH GRAB! you know how lucrative the MeToo witch hunt has been for these ladies, they get talk show invites, sponsors, "Victim" Donations, media coverage, book deals, and list go's on. I've met real rape victim (WHICH HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN PROVEN) and the stuff they have been through is horrible. They feel ashamed, embarrassed, depressioned about what happened to them and the last thing they want is media attention. So when i asked them about the Metoo moment, almost all 80% said MeToo has made it worse for victims and how they feel that half (not all) of these women are making these claims up. Shame truly, fucking shame.
