Vienna’s Lulu: Since #metoo, men don’t dare touch memain
The soprano Agneta Eichenholz is aware that 700 of her colleagues in Sweden have suffered sexual harassment, ‘that means all of us’.
But now she is feeling the knock-on effects.
She is asked: Is #metoo influencing the new “Lulu” production?
Agneta: Not in the outcome, but in the work. We’ve talked a lot about it, how women should respond to abuse. But now we have almost the opposite problem: the men are so careful with me, they hardly dare touch me. But then I have nothing to work with. That’s hard. I have to make it clear: Please touch me!
