NEW YORK (AP) — A fourth person is accusing acclaimed Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine of sexual misconduct.

Violinist Albin Ifsich told The New York Times that the abuse happened in 1968 when he was a 20-year-old student at Michigan's Meadow Brook School of Music, where Levine was on the faculty.

He said Levine exposed himself and engaged in masturbation.

Ifsich is the third former student at Meadow Brook to accuse Levine publicly of sexual misconduct. A fourth man has accused Levine of molesting him in Illinois when he was 16.

Levine's representatives haven't responded to messages.

The Metropolitan Opera says Levine denied the allegations.

The opera suspended Levine on Sunday after the Times published accounts from three of the accusers.

Prosecutors in Lake County, Illinois, say they are reviewing the allegations.
