NEW YORK 〓 James Levine suing Metropolitan Opera for breach of contract and defamation


James Levine suing MET for breach of contract and defamation. The Associated Press reports that lawyers for the former music director of the Metropolitan Opera have filed suit in a New York court claiming unfair dismissal.

The lawsuit claims a breach of contract and a series of unspecified damages for defamation. He is seeking $5.8 million in damages and the restoration of ‘Levine’s name, reputation and career.’

He alleges that the Met and its general manager Peter Gelb by ‘cynically hijacking the good will of the #MeToo movement, brazenly seized on these allegations as a pretext to end a longstanding personal campaign to force Levine out of the Met.’
