Bad news for Met  Opera fans. The Metropolitan Opera confirmed Sunday that an investigation into its legendary conductor, James Levine, who allegedly molested a young male in the 1980 ‘s.  The Opera confirmed the news after reports surfaced of the sexual assault, even, going as far as to confirm that they’ve known about the investigation for some time.

The man, per the Opera,    contacted police  beginning last year to report that he had been in sexual contact with Levine while he had been under the age of 18.  The man alleges that Levine, while a conductor for the Ravinia Festival (he was top dog from 1973 until the early 1990’s)  would engage in multiple sexual acts with him  in and out of his home in which he resided in at the time.

The name, ehum, is reportedly being withheld by the AP. The Daily News learned during the publication of the report that it appears that we have the name of the accuser, but, have been asked by multiple fellow outlets to stop publication of the name in question.   The claims go on to say that the man received upwards of $50,000 (even well into adulthood);  was often encouraged to engage in sexual exploration, and invited to audition in New York privately for Levine.
