Luminous, bold, and bright, our 2024 Season presents colourful characters and stories from literature, history, and imagination.
In a fusion of new and loved works told through traditional classical and vivid contemporary repertoire, we explore dreamscapes, realism, and fairytales – some with an unexpected twist. Vibrant, textured characters are the focus of this last season curated by Li Cunxin AO (Queensland Ballet Artistic Director 2013 – 2023).
Discover an arrestingly beautiful Coppélia set in sundrenched regional Australia; icon Coco Chanel: the Life of a Fashion Icon in Jazz Age Paris; fairy kings and queens in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and festive favourite The Nutcracker returns with Clara, the Snow Queen and Sugar Plum Fairy.
