Singer Plácido Domingo, who faces accusations of sexual misconduct by at least 2o women, resigned from the LA Opera on Wednesday, just over a week after he withdrew from the Metropolitan Opera's Verdi's "Macbeth" production.

Driving the news: LA Opera President and CEO Christopher Koelsch said that internal investigations into harassment allegations against Domingo will "continue until its resolution," the LA Times reports. Meanwhile, the Met's statement on Domingo's withdrawal seemed to suggest the company asked him to leave, the NYT reports.

  • As originally reported by AP, Domingo's accusers alleged he tried to pressure them "into sexual relationships by dangling jobs and then sometimes punishing the women professionally when they refused his advances."

Context: Metropolitan Opera general manager Peter Gelb told Met employees in September that he had not investigated or suspended Domingo "because the women came forward only to the AP and not to other credible news outlets as well," NPR reports.

  • The Met fired famed conductor James Levine last year after an internal investigation found "credible evidence that Mr. Levine had engaged in 'sexually abusive and harassing conduct,'" as described by the Met.

Mary Trump book: How she leaked Trump financials to NYT

Simon & Schuster

In her new memoir, President Trump's niece reveals how she leaked hordes of confidential Trump family financial documents to the New York Times in an effort to expose her uncle, whom she portrays as a dangerous sociopath.

Why it matters: Trump was furious when he found out recently that Mary Trump, a trained psychologist, would be publishing a tell-all memoir. And Trump's younger brother, Robert, tried and failed to block the publication of "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man."

Fauci: "False narrative" to take comfort in lower coronavirus death rate

Anthony Fauci said at an event with Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) on Tuesday "that it's a false narrative to take comfort in a lower rate of death" from the coronavirus in the U.S., warning: "There’s so many other things that are dangerous and bad about the virus. Don’t get into false complacency."

The big picture: The mean age of Americans currently being infected by the virus has declined by 15 years compared to where it stood several months ago. This has been one contributing factor in the lower death rate the U.S. has experienced during the recent surge in cases, since "the younger you are, the better you do, and the less likely you're gonna get seriously ill and die," Fauci said.
