Limelight June 2021



The June 2021 issue of Limelight

Cover story: The first Cumming. Alan Cumming discusses the program he has put together for his inaugural Adelaide Cabaret Festival this month, which culminates with the world premiere of his own new show Alan Cumming Is Not Acting His Age. The self-styled "Scottish elf trapped in a middle-aged man’s body" also discusses his high-flying career, his famous bar Club Cumming in New York, American politics, and social media.

Feature: Classical music and disability. Morwenna Collett is an arts consultant, specialising in diversity, access and inclusion as well as a classical musician with a disability. She explores the current state of inclusiveness in the Australian classical music scene, and shares some best practice examples from overseas.

Profile: We interview in-demand didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton, who inspired composer Peter Sculthorpe, and works with artists across genres from classical music to theatre to jazz. This month he performs with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra as they premiere his latest composition.

Reviews: Our experienced critics cover the latest live concerts, operas, plays and dance productions including Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s concert From the New World featuring music by Dvorák, Holly Harrison and Joan Tower, conducted by Johannes Fritzsch; Jeanine Tesori’s musical Fun Home at Sydney Theatre Company; and ABC foreign correspondent Sally Sara’s new play Stop Girl at Belvoir.

On Stage, On Air & Online: We preview live performances, livestreams, cinema screenings, digital events and radio highlights to look out for this month.
