The August 2021 issue of Limelight goes on sale 3 August, 2021. Cover story- A New Universe. Adapted by Tim McGarry, Trent Dalton' s best-selling novel Boy Swallows Universe opens at this year' s Brisbane Festival. The coming-of-age story, loosely based on Dalton' s own life, is set in Brisbane in the 1980s. Dalton, McGarry, director Sam Strong and actor Joe Klocek, who plays the teenage protagonist Eli Bell, discuss the highly anticipated move from page to stage. Feature- Film Music. In 2021, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra records Nigel Westlake' s soundtrack for the film Blueback, based on the Tim Winton novel, for ABC Classic. We take a look at the state of Australian film music composition - the challenges, the success stories, and what makes an effective film score. Feature- River. Following the huge success of Mountain, the Australian Chamber Orchestra undertakes another musical and cinematic odyssey with the same creative team, this time exploring rivers. Discover what went into making this extraordinary project, with its tale of humans and nature as partners and adversaries, and a score featuring music by Richard Tognetti, Bach, Vivaldi, Ravel and Jonny Greenwood. Interview- Gemma New. The New Zealand-born conductor makes her Sydney Symphony Orchestra debut this month with a concert featuring Sibelius and Tchaikovsky. Now based in the US, we get to know the young conductor, who is regarded as a rising star. Reviews- Our experienced critics cover the latest live concerts, operas, plays and dance productions including The Australian Ballet' s Anna Karenina, the semi-staged revival of the 1986 Australian opera Voss, and Michelle Law' s new comedy Miss Peony at Belvoir. On Stage, On Air and Online- We preview live performances, livestreams, cinema screenings, digital events and radio highlights to look out for this month.
