The August issue of Limelight is our annual opera extravaganza, available now in newsagents and from our online store. The cover star is the late, lamented Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in one of his last interviews. The 86-year-old bared his musical soul and reflected on his journey from WWII soldier to the world's foremost interpreter of Lieder.
Exclusive to the Limelight website, we celebrate Fischer-Dieskau's life and remarkable singing career with his 12 finest moments on film.
Back in Australia by way of Hamburg, homegrown conductor Simone Young gives Limelight a masterclass in the operas of Richard Wagner, which she describes as "bigger, longer and more intense than anything else."
