Two music companies that were to give concerts by Placido Domingo and the Los Angeles Opera have canceled the activities because of the allegations of sexual harassment against the opera singer and conductor.
They also say they will start an investigation after news reports that several women believe that they have been mistakenly treated by Domingo, Billboard writes.
Domingo has been the general director of the LA Opera since 2003 and has previously acted as artistic director. Both jobs gave him power, which, according to his prosecutors, led to sexual harassment and unacceptable behavior.
The women believe he forced them into sexual acts in order to get an important job that he could provide. If they refused, they would not get the job.
Metropolitan Opera of New York awaits investigation
On Tuesday, both the Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Opera announced that they had canceled all performances by the world-famous opera singer.
The Metropolitan Opera of New York wants to await the investigation of the LA Opera before proceeding with possible measures. He will perform in 'The Met' next month, but it remains to be seen whether that actually happens.

Domingo calls accusations 'inaccurate'
Domingo calls the accusations at his address "inaccurate". "Yet it is painful to hear that I may have upset or made someone feel uncomfortable - no matter how long ago and despite my best intentions. I thought all my interactions and relationships were always welcome and with mutual agreement."
The opera singer is accused by nine women of sexual harassment, AP reported. The incidents would have occurred over a period of thirty years, and would have started in the 1980s.
