There is a marvelous and quite devastating article in the Boston Globe
titled "In the Maestro's Thrall".  It's a chilling retelling of sexual and
psychological abuse by James Levine to his acolytes over the years prior to
and even extending for some, after his arrival at the Met in 1972.  It is a
classic tale of manipulation by the strong over the weak.  It is sort of
similar to the Manson syndrome except the object wasn't the taking of
life.  Perhaps I am over reacting but it is chilling and frightening that
this could have been happening so early in his career and he managed to
pull it off for decades.  There is just too much coming out to ignore.  You
can say due process all you want, but this stuff is scary.

Donald
