    These events would have occurred from 1985 to 2010, while the man from switzerland was a guest of american orchestras.

    “He has me pressed against a wall, took my hand against his pants and pushed his tongue in my throat”, told the AP the mezzo-soprano to the pension Paula Rasmussen, regarding an assault that occurred in a locker room of the Los Angeles opera in September 1991.

    Dutoit is the chief conductor and the artistic director of the royal philharmonic Orchestra in London.
