New York's Metropolitan Opera has suspended acclaimed conductor James Levine after new sexual misconduct allegations.

On Saturday, the organization said it would open an investigation into accusations that Levine sexually abused a man three decades ago, beginning when the man was a teenager.

Levine's accuser, now middle-aged, contacted the police department in Lake Forest, Illinois, in October of 2016 to report that he'd had sexual contact with the conductor when he was under age 18.

He said he was reaching out to police in Lake Forest because some of his encounters with Levine took place there in the mid-1980s. Levine served as music director at the Ravinia Festival, outside Chicago, from 1973 to 1993.
