    Poor old Flaccido; leave him alone!!

  • Interesting to see continental Europe so clearly define its disregard concerning the rights and dignity of women in classical music. If they think that can wait a year and people will forget Domingo’s treatment of women, they are, of course, mistaken.

  • Maria says:

    Leave plácido alone women…. why after 40 years do you decide to speak up and destroy his carreer?? You should have came up front many years ago…. Why now???
