The latest claim of sexual misconduct comes from a Manhattan pianist who, in a sworn affidavit, alleges the inappropriate behaviour occurred when conductor Joseph Colaneri forced her as a young apprentice to attend a performance of “La Traviata” with him.
The woman, who did not want to be identified, was a 25-year-old assistant conductor-in-training at the time of the alleged 2001 encounter with Colaneri who was a teacher in her program.
The 62 year old Colaneri, who conducted a performance as staff artist at the Met over the weekend, was a visiting conductor in a student program in San Francisco when the alleged assault occurred .
Colaneri is one of 23 in-house Met conductors who helm a handful of operas every year and sometimes fill in for star conductors.  Music Director James Levine was suspended after allegations of sexual misconduct were leveled against him.
