Placido Domingo Concert Cancellation.pdf
San Francisco Opera today announced it is cancelling the October 6, 2019 concert featuring Plácido Domingo.
The decision to cancel the concert was made after recent news reports of multiple allegations of sexual harassment. Though the alleged incidents reported did not take place at San Francisco Opera, the Company is unable to present the artist on the War Memorial Opera House stage.
San Francisco Opera is committed to its strong anti-sexual harassment policy and requires all Company members to adhere to the highest standards of professional conduct. San Francisco Opera places a great priority on creating a safe and secure environment where everyone can focus on their work and art, and in which colleagues are treated with respect, dignity and collegiality.
Concert ticketholders will be contacted by the San Francisco Opera Box Office. Patrons can choose to exchange their tickets into another performance prior to the close of the season in June 2020; donate the funds to San Francisco Opera; or request a refund.
