Serena Leland of New York City thinks the board of the Metropolitan Opera should allow its emeritus music director to return to work. So she has put up a petition.
Part of her reasoning:
This petition is not asking the Metropolitan Opera to employ Mr. Levine till the end of his life. It is not asking the Metropolitan Opera to allow him to fulfil his engagements as Emeritus Music Director if any criminal allegation against him goes to court. It is simply demanding the free right of an extremely devoted musician to be able to continue creating great performances as a free citizen of the United States until or unless he is pronounced guilty by a criminal court or at the very least sued in civil court.

So far, ten people have signed.
