With one criminal organization sexual exploitation of women and minors connect the Argentine tenor, Placido Domingo, the country’s prosecutors. As part of an investigation last week, police made 50 raids on the Buenos Aires Yoga School and arrested 19 people.
In addition, many TV channels in Latin America broadcast excerpts from recordingswhich were obtained from wiretaps and include the voice of a man — whom authorities say is Domingo — making plans with alleged members of the ring, but the dates of those recordings have not been made public.
In the excerpts, according to NPR.orgthe man is heard talking to “Meddy,” a woman with whom allegedly making plans for them to have sex. The man details how he plans to escape the attention of his staff members so he can meet her. Another excerpt includes “Meddy’s” conversation with the alleged ringleader in which she informs him that she has arranged to meet the man, whom she identifies as “Plácido».
From 2019 more than 20 women have made public allegations of misconduct against the tenor. As a result of these accusations, himself parted ways with New York’s Metropolitan Opera and resigned from the role of general manager of LA Opera in California.
NPR reached out to Domingo’s representatives for comment, but did not hear back.
