James Levine, the former longtime maestro of the Metropolitan Opera, has died in Palm Springs, Calif., at the age of 77, according to a report.
His March 9 death was confirmed Wednesday morning by his physician, Dr. Len Horovitz, The New York Times reported.
The cause of death was not immediately released.
Levine — who was maestro of the Metropolitan Opera for more than 40 years — was one of the most admired conductors in the world until allegations of sexual abuse and harassment derailed his career.
The Post reported in 2017 that Levine had molested a teenager for years after they met at a music festival near Chicago.
Levine was suspended from the famous opera house shortly after they launched an investigation. He was later fired.
