San Francisco Opera is canceling its upcoming concert with superstar tenor/baritone Placido Domingo.

The announcement was released today (Aug. 13), just one day after allegations were made public that the celebrated vocalist “tried to pressure women into sexual relationships by dangling jobs and then sometimes punishing the women professionally when they refused his advances,” according to the Associated Press.

“The decision to cancel the concert was made after recent news reports of multiple allegations of sexual harassment,” the news release from the San Francisco opera reads. “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.
