The publication of new accusations of sexual harassment against Plácido Domingo by the Associated Press (AP) agency on Thursday have introduced two new female names in the 'who's who' of the case. This is the soprano Angela Turner Wilson and Melinda McLain, former production coordinator of the Los Angeles Opera, of which Domingo has been an artistic director since 2003, in the inaugural season 1986-1987.
As with Patricia Wulf , the first accuser to give her name and surname, Angela Turner Wilson's career is hardly traceable in operatic annals and virtually only the version she offers herself is available on her website. In it, it is specified that he has worked in various operas and auditoriums, exclusively in North America . Among them, the New York City Opera, the Boston Lyric Opera, the US National Symphony Orchestra, the operas of Dallas, Portland and Atlanta or the Washington National Opera, where, according to her, there was the aggression of Placido Domingo, and that In 2000 he awarded her as 'Singer of the Year'.
In his curriculum there are also evenings in which he interpreted the 'God bless America' in the White House during the term of Bill Clinton in a reception to the delegation of the government of Italy, as well as an inaugural act of presidential libraries during the term of George W. Bush Likewise, you can see how he participated in the movie 'Miss America' (1989), starring Holly Hunter and that it was a box office failure. Turner Wilson herself highlights among her achievements the recording of the DVD with the representation of 'El Cid' with Placido Domingo.
Away from interpretation, Turner Wilson is now associated with education, primarily through Texas Christian University, an educational entity associated with the Disciples of Christ. Under this denomination a Protestant Christian sect of the southern United States is identified, which included former President Ronald Reagan among his faithful.
As for McLain, his operatic trail is even harder to follow. After working at the Los Angeles Opera and the Houston Opera, she also opted for the religious path and a Protestant pastor. On his Twitter profile he indicates that he resides in the San Francisco Bay area and has a rainbow flag, from the LGBTI community.
Another proper name appears in the second note on Placido Domingo from AP: baritone Robert Garnder , which corroborates Patricia Wulf's accusations after she announced that she had "a witness" who could prove what she said. Although mainly focused on the US, Gardner does have experience outside his country, and has sung with the Munich Philharmonic and the Bavarian National Opera. Constant mentions of the Time's Up movement appear on her Twitter profile, of which she is founder Penelope Cruz and who intends to give voice to women victims of sexual abuse.
