Information on visiting QPAC
This winter, we welcome back the mighty Bolshoi Ballet for the QPAC International Series 2019. When they last performed at QPAC in 2013, the Bolshoi’s season was one of the cultural highlights of the year, an achievement I’m sure they will repeat in 2019. If you missed out last time, now is your chance to see what is arguably one of the most distinguished ballet companies in the world!
The Bolshoi will present two works: Spartacus – originally created for the company and one of the works for which the company is renowned; and Jewels – a visually stunning and colourful work by George Balanchine. These performances are exclusive to Queensland and our thanks must go to the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland for its ongoing support of the QPAC International Series.
Other programs and artists we welcome back to QPAC this winter include Duck an original Out of the Box production for young children, the QPAC Choir with a showcase concert called Rock Choir, and Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier who return to the Cremorne Theatre to perform EPIC. Drama fans and young people will have the opportunity to be immersed in Slingsby’s version of Oscar Wilde’s play The Young King and classical music fans will not want to miss out on Nicole Car in Recital.
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Bangarra Dance Theatre on 30 years! Bangarra returns to QPAC as part of its annual national tour with a new work thoughtfully titled 30 years of sixty five thousand. I look forward to seeing this production and to sharing in the celebrations of one of our great national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts companies as they mark this milestone.
I hope you find something in our winter program that inspires you to visit QPAC.
