Placido Domingo répond à ses accusatrices — Harcèlement sexuel

13 Août, 2019, 20:21 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Évitez à tout prix toute interaction avec lui. Ce témoignage d'une mezzo-soprano qui a travaillé pour l'opéra de Los Angeles reflète ce qui, selon l'Associated Press (AP) serait un secret de polichinelle dans le milieu de l'opéra: l'attitude du grand ténor espagnol envers les femmes qui travaillaient avec lui.

Placido Domingo a réagi.

Elles expliquent comment le chanteur posait sa main sur leur jupe, les embrassait ou leur demandait avec insistance si elles voulaient sortir avec lui. À l'issue d'un spectacle, alors qu'elle était parvenue jusque-là à lui résister, elle a fini par accepter une invitation qui s'est terminée dans la chambre à coucher, avec des caresses.

Ces femmes estiment que leur carrière a pâti de leur refus face aux avances du " Roi de l'opéra ". Et il m'a donné des conseils et a été très élogieux. Les autres femmes restent anonymes, craignant de perdre leur travail ou de subir des représailles.

Patricia Wulf, une mezzo-soprano qui a chanté avec Placido Domingo à l'opéra de Washington, est la seule à avoir accepté de dévoiler son identité. "Chaque fois que je sortais de scène, il m'attendait dans les coulisses". Quand un homme se tient si près de vous avec un sourire en coin et vous demande à maintes reprises si vous devez rentrer à la maison, je ne peux pas trouver d'autres conclusions que le fait qu'il voulait me mettre dans son lit. Encore plus quand il a la réputation de faire ça. Et si, à 61 ans, les larmes aux yeux, elle a décidé de témoigner c'est parce que, dit-elle, "j'espère que cela pourra aider d'autres femmes à se faire connaître ou à être assez fortes pour dire non". "Ces accusations de la part de ces femmes anonymes, remontant pour certaines à 30 ans, sont vraiment dérangeantes, et comme elles le sont présentées, inexactes", a-t-il répliqué dans une déclaration envoyée à Associated Press. "Mais il est douloureux d'entendre que j'ai pu contrarier ou mis mal à l'aise qui que ce soit - même si c'était il y a longtemps et malgré mes meilleures intentions". Je pensais que toutes mes interactions et relations étaient toujours bienvenue et consensuelles. "Les gens qui me connaissent ou qui ont travaillé avec moi savent que je ne suis pas quelqu'un qui intentionnellement heurterait, offenserait ou placerait quelqu'un dans l'embarras". Une trentaine de chanteuses, danseuses, musiciennes et autres professionnelles ayant trait à l'opéra ont tenu à apporter leur soutien aux accusatrices et dénoncent, elles aussi, un comportement déplacé de la part de Placido Domingo.

"Cependant, je dois reconnaître que les règles et les standards par lesquels nous sommes - et nous devrions - être jugés aujourd'hui sont vraiment différents de ce qui avait court par le passé", a ajouté le chanteur aux 4000 représentations. "J'ai le privilège d'avoir eu plus de 50 ans de carrière à l'opéra et respecterai les normes les plus élevées".
