MI­LAN (AP) — Even as his US ca­reer seem­ingly winds down amid ac­cu­sa­tions of sex­ual ha­rass­ment, opera leg­end Placido Domingo re­mains on the bill of a host of Euro­pean opera houses.

But cracks, even if slight, are be­gin­ning to show in his sup­port.

The 78-year-old singer who rose to star­dom as a tenor has been con­firmed to sing the bari­tone ti­tle role in “Nabucco” at the Zurich Opera House in Switzer­land on Tues­day.

It will be Domingo’s first per­for­mance since he stepped down Oct. 2 as gen­eral di­rec­tor of the Los An­ge­les Opera and with­drew from fu­ture per­for­mances at the com­pany.

The move left the star with no more US dates on his pub­lic cal­en­dar, putting a ques­tion mark over his pro­fes­sional fu­ture in a coun­try where he thrived ar­tis­ti­cally for decades.
