David Edward Lewis, 58, a former chorus member of Opera Australia, has admitted past sex offences involving a 14-year-old girl. He left the company last year when police pressed charges.

It is reported that when the offences were made known to OA executives, they appointed a chaperone for the child but did not take action against the perpetrator. The company denies having any record of the incident.

Lewis will be sentenced later this year.
