Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Responds to Accusations Made About Charles Dutoit

Following media allegations of inappropriate conduct by Charles Dutoit, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) and Charles Dutoit have jointly agreed to release him from his forthcoming concert obligations with the Orchestra for the immediate future.

As a leading international ensemble, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is committed to the highest standards of ethical behaviour, which it expects from everyone that works with the RPO. The Orchestra takes very seriously its responsibility to maintain a safe working environment for all its artists, musicians and staff.

 

These accusations are taken very seriously by the Orchestra and the RPO believes that the truth of the matter should be determined by the legal process. The immediate action taken by the RPO and Charles Dutoit allows time for a clear picture to be established. Charles Dutoit needs to be given a fair opportunity to seek legal advice and contest these accusations.
