This month, international conductor Simone Young is
celebrating 30 years since she first conducted an opera in
Australia. She tells Rebecca Fox about ''slowing'' down and
fitting in a road trip to Dunedin.
An interactive environment reminiscent of the gold-rush
era in downtown Dunedin, ''a la Deadwood'', complete with
amusements, oddities and mud will be re-created in the
Athenaeum to celebrate the city's 150th anniversary. Rebecca
Fox discovers why.
