New York's Metropolitan Opera says it has suspended the renowned conductor James Levine following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Met said James Levine, 74, would not appear this season and it had appointed a law firm to investigate his actions.

Three men have now accused Levine of abusing them decades ago when they were teenagers.

Levine, who was music director at the Met for 40 years, has not commented publicly on the accusations.

He retired for health reasons in 2016 but has continued to work with the opera as music director emeritus.
