In this time of extraordinary change where major art galleries present fashion designers in major exhibitions, digital ‘art’ is everywhere, and the populism of art as a government imperative is ubiquitous, how does a ‘heritage’ artist relate to our ‘fast food, quick fix’ society.
Lyndon Terracini is an operatic baritone and current Artistic Director of Opera Australia. Terracini’s professional operatic debut was in 1976, as ‘Sid’ in The Australian Opera’s Albert Herring at the Sydney Opera House. Before taking up his post at Opera Australia, he was Artistic Director of the 2001, 2003 and 2005 Queensland Music Festivals as well as Artistic Director/CEO of the 2006, 2008 and 2009 Brisbane Festivals. In 1993, Lyndon Terracini founded Northern Rivers Performing Arts (NORPA), which developed into one of the most important performing arts organisations in regional Australia and was awarded the Myer Foundation Group Award in 2002.
