WEL­COME TO MEL­BOURNE

Where Melbourne - - News - Roshan Sukhla Pub­lish­ing Ed­i­tor

Mel­bourne shines in Oc­to­ber with world-class events all month long.

The Spring Rac­ing Car­ni­val has well and truly kicked off with a bang. There are mag­nif­i­cent rac­ing meets on this month in­clud­ing Lad­brokes Caulfield Guineas Day, the $3.15 mil­lion BMW Caulfield Cup and the Cox Plate Car­ni­val (page 12).

Jenny Burns delves into this year’s mighty Mel­bourne Fes­ti­val pro­gram. From mod­ern dance and dy­namic the­atre, to con­tem­po­rary mu­sic and vis­ual arts, Mel­bourne Fes­ti­val has some­thing for ev­ery­one (page 14).

Our cover this month fea­tures Mel­bourne The­atre Com­pany’s pro­duc­tion of Noël Coward’s “Hay Fever” (page 22). The cast in­cludes the bril­liant Ma­rina Prior, Gareth Davies, Marg Downey and Si­mon Glee­son. We caught up with Marg Downey to dis­cuss her role and joy at work­ing with the MTC (page 8).

Turn to the Where Now fea­ture (page 18) for Oc­to­ber’s must-see ex­hi­bi­tions and per­for­mances in­clud­ing “The Body­guard” mu­si­cal, Toorak Vil­lage Art Walk and “Ro­manc­ing the Skull” at the Art Gallery of Bal­larat.

However you choose to spend your time here in Mel­bourne, we hope you have a pleas­ant stay!

Fed­er­a­tion Square, Yarra River.
