Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo has been accused by nine women from the world of opera of sexual harassment.

Associated Press published the statements of the accusers that claim that the Madrid-born artist put pressure on them to enter into sexual relations with him and "punished" them in their careers when he felt rejected.

The incidents are alleged to have started in the 1980s and carried on over three decades.

Domingo, currently head of the opera houses in Washington and Los Angeles, has said that the allegations as presented are inaccurate and that he believed all interactions had been consensual.
