We hear that Simon Crookall is no longer general director of Hawaii Opera Theatre.

He is officially departing on April 24, on very short notice. His predecessor, Karen Tiller, will return in a temporary capacity until a new appointment is made. Anyone who likes going to work in a flowered shirt should consider applying.

Simon, 57, was previously CEO of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and, before that, of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
