In an interview with AP, opera legend Plácido Domingo denied ever abusing his power during his management tenure at two U.S. opera houses. The singer has emerged from a bout of the coronavirus with a mission to rehabilitate his opera career. (Aug. 23)
PLACIDO DOMINGO: What I have say from day one is that I never, that I never abuse anybody, you know? I never promise a part to sing or I never take a part to sing to anybody. I have spent all my life helping and, you know, encouraging and driving people, you know? It is sad for me not to be able to sing in the United States. I enjoy it so much for over half century. The public has been really, really extraordinary.
