Lyndon Terracini, hyper-sensitive artistic director of Opera Australia, has told two women writers that they are persona non grata at his opera house.
Harriet Cunningham of the Sydney Morning Herald, received this email from a media flak:
Lyndon is very offended following your article earlier this week – I’m sure this comes as no great surprise. So no, I’m afraid we’re not able to offer you any further comp tickets.
Diana Simmonds of StageNoise was told: In response to some of your recent writing about the company, Lyndon asked that you be removed from the media list.
